Overview

Fleeing New York City and an abusive partner, would-be writer Marc Nugent finds work at HomePort, the Provincetown mansion of Lola Staunton, a fabulously wealthy recluse. Aided by an attractive-but-unattainable artist and an all-too-available cross-dresser, Marc investigates accusations of rape and murder that have estranged Lola from a childhood friend for more than sixty years. Past and present converge when a long-lost journal reveals tales of infidelity, adultery, and passion that mirror the life Marc has recently abandoned. When his ex-lover arrives in search of revenge, Marc must confront his past, his notions of family, and his capacity for love.

About the Author

A.C. Burch trained as a classical musician, coming late to a literary career. His icons run the gamut from Jane Austin to Bart Yates by circuitous way of Patrick Dennis, Agatha Christie, Walter Mosely, and especially Armistead Maupin, whose notion of the "logical family" has become a core component of A.C.'s writings. While many of his characters are LGBTQ, his passion is for those who are marginalized or misunderstood-whatever their orientation.
Since 1987, A.C. has lived in Provincetown. Well known for his lack of domesticity, he frequently channels "Little Edie" Beale in moments of desperation-whether indoors or out.
When not splitting wood for his vintage wood stove, A.C. splits his time between Provincetown and South Beach.
