A short enjoyable read. For the length not a lot of room for character development, but I felt the issue it dealt with to be harrowing and always reminds me how lucky I am to be living now. 1914 Australia and gay, it must have been a nightmare not being able to live out your love without the constant fear of persecution. I felt the hopelessness of their situation making it a somewhat sad and melancholy read and not an HEA I'm afraid. A no-way-out situation which always tugs at my heart strings.
