This passion that can t be talked about that has to be concealed gives way to the terrible uestion if it isn t talked about how can one know that it really exists One day when it s over when it finally comes to an end no one will be able to attest to what took place Is this a memoir or just fiction Surely it s a memoir and if it is it makes this even of a compelling readI was a mess after I finished thisIt was always going to be obvious the outcome for Thomas and Philippe wouldn t be the one the reader wanted and that wasn t really the reason I was a messIt was about the world we live in where as recently as the 1980 s people still have to hide their sexuality and as a result never get to live their lives the way they want toStarting in 1984 and finishing in 2017 this one touched me deeplyTwo young boys who became lovers for a summer but were never destined to be much I did struggleinitially with the lack of dialogue but the I read the I didn t mind although as a result the book had a very melancholy feel to itThe joy and anguish of that first love told in the most beautiful words hereThe majority of the book centres around Thomas and Philippe s youthHow they got together and their subseuent relationshipMy heart ached for these boysTheir story was so touching and yet so sadHow many people meet and fall in love and never really stand a chance The later part is when Philippe meets Thomas s son by chance one day and finally finds out a little of Thomas s life after the summer of 1984I say a little of Thomas s life because although his story is told there s so much you don t know in a wayIt s not romance but it definitely was a love story Review copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley
