Jane Davitt is English, and has been living in Canada with her husband, two children, and two cats, since 1997. Writing and reading are her main occupations but if she ever had any spare time she might spend it gardening, walking, or doing cross stitch. She's recently taken up yoga and loves discovering her ability to bend.
Jane has been writing since 2002 and wishes she'd started earlier. She is a huge fan of SF, fantasy, erotica, and mystery novels and has a tendency to get addicted to TV shows that get cancelled all too soon.
She owns over 4,000 books, rarely gives any away, but is happy to loan them, and is of the firm opinion that there is no such thing as 'too many books'.
This short story was a nice surprise for me, since I though I was reading a paranormal tale and instead found a nice historical one. Actually maybe "historical" is stretching a bit the genre, since it's setting in the '50 of the twenty century, but it is important to underlight the time in which the story is set since it gave a different taste to all. Paul is the sheriff of a small town USA; he has not a bad life, he is well-good by his town folks, and probably everything would be perfect if not for the fact that Paul is gay and he has no way to be gay in the small town where he lives; even if there is no law against him, probably the town folks that now like him will hung him if they know. And so Paul lives in hiding, till the day a moving carnival arrives in town; among the performers there is Max, a very handsome man who arises forbidden desires in Paul. He can't help to go day after day to see the man performing with his big cats, but he has no courage to make a move; and probably Max would have been only a nice memory if not for an accident that forced the carnival to stop in the town. This event allows Paul to understand two things: that his apparently perfect life is all a lie, and that the town folks are not accepting of diversity, both physical than sexual; and that he can have a different life with Max, if he only has the courage to reach for it.
