If you do not like graphic sexual descriptions this is not for you. I hate to say this about sex in books but I can take it or leave it. Anne, I think it would be correct to say, does a great job in describing sex and sex acts. But for the real bulk of the story, there is more to it.
It is so funny I just read a short story from her yesterday where the sex was hidden and not spoken about. And then today I read this where it is all out in the open.
But the real story here is about Mark. A man who has a boyfriend he loves, Craig. But he is sleeping with Richard. And Richard is a priest.
So what happens when, for the first time Richard comes over to Mark's house because Craig is supposed to be out for the evening, but Craig comes home early?
What happens to Mark and Richard?
Will Mark choose Craig over Richard? And will Richard choose God over Mark?
We find out about both men and their faith in God.
This was a very interesting story and if you are not looking closely it seems all about sex but it is not. At least that is how I see it.
If it had a good storyline, I would be able to get past the sex, I am not prude but everyone is different, and read another story like this especially from this author.
I read this in one breath and not only because this is a short story, but 'cause it was so gripping and filled with dark passion, heavy thoughts and anguish about not being able to change a thing.. Such a perfect mix! I have rarely read a short story so well rounded and complete. :)
I cannot possibly do a just review for The Heart's Greater Silence, so I'll just stop with saying that I loved absolutely everything about this book - the stunningly beautiful cover, excellent editing and formatting and, of course,the story itself. Will definitely read this again!
This was one of those books that I read the excerpt and had to read the whole book. I was warned by the author that the book was a bit grim. So I was thankful for that bit of information before embarking on the story. It's well written and emotionally draining. I recommend the book but if you are looking for HEA you should wait to read it.
