Good Karma, Good Books: In from the Cold by Carolina Valdez
This week, I’m all about "In From the Cold" by Carolina Valdez.
Here’s what Carolina says about "In From the Cold:"
I selected this title because when young love fades and is reignited later in life to become something real, to me that is like coming in from the cold to warmth and acceptance.
East is East and West is West and never the twain shall meet…
Jon and Wendell were fourteen when they first experimented on each other and discovered they were gay. Lovers and in love, they drifted apart after graduation when Jon left to follow his dream to rock ʼn roll stardom. A heartbroken Wendell recovered by earning an animal husbandry degree at a California university. He returned to the small Oregon town where they’d grown up to raise sheep with his father.
Ten years later, Wendell’s contentment is shattered when Jon and his band arrive to play for their high school reunion. Love surprises them by flaring immediately into liquid heat. Jon asks Wendell to give up his life in Oregon and live with him in New York City. Wendell refuses, however, asking Jon to move in with him instead. But Jon refuses to give up his career and returns to Manhattan.
Will Wendell and Jon remain star-crossed lovers, or will they discover a way to bridge the distance and discover the true meaning of home? .
