About the Author
The abuse of a little boy turns a community against a loving gay couple, and nobody comes out of it unscathed.
Sean and Austin have the perfect life: new love, a riverfront home, security. Their love for one another is only multiplied when Sean’s eight-year-old son, Jason, visits on the weekends.
And then their perfect world shatters.
Jason goes missing.
When the boy turns up days later, he's been so horribly abused he’s lost the power to speak. Immediately small town minds turn to the boy’s gay father and his lover as the likely culprits. What was a warm, welcoming community becomes a lynching party out for blood.
As Sean and Austin struggle to stay together amidst innuendo, the very real threat of Sean losing the son he loves emerges. Yet the true villain is much closer to home, intent on ensuring the boy’s muteness is permanent.

*** Copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie in exchange for a fair and honest review. *** Sean and Austin are starting their lives together in a small town, only made better by Sean's eight-year-old son, Jason, who visits them on the weekends. Then, one day their world shatters when Jason is kidnapped and appears a few days later having been abused so much, he loses the power to speak. The small town immediately point their fingers towards Sean and Austin, and make trying to find the real culprit even harder. I can't even begin to imagine how hard going through such a horrible experience like this might be. Everything from the abuse to the narrowmindedness of some people could have been taken out of the pages of any newspaper lying around. I have to give props to the author for presenting everything that Sean, Austin, Jason and Shelley had to deal through the story in a realistic manner. It wasn't an easy read for certain, but it was well-written, full of intrigue and suspense, with an engaging storyline and I guess that despite the heavy theme, all that ends well is good enough for me.
