For the Living by L.A. Witt
When you're hiding a secret it's hard. When you want to confess said secret it's hard. For the person to die before you can tell them the truth can lead you to a lifetime of guilt...
For Jay this is exactly what happened.
He was gay and he knew it so why was it so hard to come out? Could be the fact that the most important person to tell was his wife.
When the option to tell her was taken away from him, how would he be able to move on?
This book is all about him trying to come to terms with the fallout, trying to move past the guilt and looking towards a future as an out and proud gay man.
We see him struggle, watch him find solace in drink and the arms of a man at last.
A very moving insight in to the mind of a bereaved man.
Well written and rounded story.
4 out of 5 stars.
