A War Hero.
A Broken Man.
A Secret Love.
It’s been a long few years for Charlie Harris. After being drafted into the Navy in October 1940 after the outbreak of World War Two, a horrific bomb explosion has left him alone, confused and injured in a London he barely recognizes anymore. Charlie has always been a stubborn man, who refuses to accept help from anyone. But will he be able to change his ways when he’s faced with the ultimate choice – accept help or accept life confined to a hospital bed? In 1944, Charlie doesn’t have many options left. A revolutionary wheelchair has changed his life, but Charlie is totally lost with no family or friends to comfort him. The days tick by, melding into one another and the decorated war hero has lost all sense of hope and purpose. That is, until a stranger by the name of Blaine Avery decides to shake things up. Blaine is a physiotherapist, and a good one at that, even if his methodology is a little on the unusual side.
In a time when homosexuality is still punishable by life imprisonment, will Charlie ever be able to accept his newfound feelings, and, more importantly, forgive himself? Has the God that he has revered and cherished for so many years finally abandoned him for good to no-one, like Charlie has always feared? Or will Blaine be able to satisfy his fears without Charlie having to leave behind his life and his religion?
