At a time when Christmas presents are given for the holiday, will Graham and Kamau receive the gift they’ve dreamed of for a lifetime? Each other.
This sweet delightful tale of love, hope and finding that what you thought impossible…is possible.
Graham…this wounded vet who is kicked out of his religious mother and sister’s life aftet he tells them that he’s gay. The horrible things that they say to him hurt my heart as I know that what they said…is said in real life and that hurts my heart. However, Graham has a cousin who loves him and only wants the best for him. Body, heart, and soul. Graham sees this wonderful vision and hears him sing…he’s a goner. Graham is such a sweetheart and I really liked him.
Kamau…beautiful, sweet Kamau. I like that Kamau is this really great character. He essentially lives two lives. One with is mother and grandfather…living his authentic self and one with his horrible father…more on that jackass later. Kamau is this really wonderul guy who finds his mate and wants nothing more than to claim him and be off with him and when he sees Graham…he’s finally found his mate. I like that Kamau has this great heart and only wants to be loved for himself and know that his mate isn’t going to be put off by his other half.
Graham’s cousin and his husband were really great characters. Loving and kind and helpful when Graham needed family the most. The Three Sisters (aka Witches)…now they were a hoot. I loved how they took care of Kamau when he arrived and guided him thru living as a human. I really have to say that I enjoyed the scene when they meet Graham for the first time. I giggles. Jonah…I hated that Jackass from the moment he came on screen and when you read the book…you’ll want to kick him in the throat as well. He was a great character to cause some conflict and boy…did he. But…he got his…so that made me happy.
Both of these characters are pretty well developed for such a short read and I have to say that it was a great read. I picked it up and was very pleasantly surprised at how invested I became with the story. I liked that all the characters played a part in this story and nothing was wasted. No words or deeds…it all brought you to the lovely conclusion of this story.
I have to say that if you get a chance…get this story and just fall into Graham and Kamau’s lives for awhile. You won’t be sorry.
