Description

Connor Graham is a city boy — a celebrated fashion photographer in New York. When his uncle's death drags him back to the family blueberry farm, all he wants to do is sell it as quickly as he can. Until he meets his uncle's tenant farmer.


Jed Jones, shy and stammering, devout and dedicated, has always yearned for land of his own and a man to share it with. Kept in the closet by his church, family, and disastrous first love, he longs to be accepted for who he is. But now, with his farm and his future in Connor's careless hands, he stands to lose even the little he has.


Neither man expects the connection between them. Jed sees Connor — appreciates his art and passion like no one else in this godforsaken town ever has. Connor hears Jed — looks past his stutter to listen to the man inside. The time they share is idyllic, but with the farm sale pending, even their sanctuary is a source of tension. As work, family, and their town's old-fashioned attitudes pull them apart, they must find a way to reconcile commitments to their careers and to each other.

        September 28, 2015
        There’s nothing but optimism and gentle sweetness in North’s idyllic small-town love story of city boy and country boy. New York City fashion photographer Connor Graham escaped the parochialism and homophobia of his hometown of Blandford, Mass., after high school. He returns to visit after he inherits his family’s old blueberry farm. Connor is entranced by Jed Jones, the shy, stuttering, intense tenant farmer of the property, and as they become friends and then lovers, Connor begins to see how family can maintain loving connections even through conflict. Meanwhile, Jed develops the bravery to claim more for himself than clandestine hookups with closet cases and chat room buddies, despite his fear of church and family disapproval. Even North’s most explicit scenes bring romance more forward than lust, and even her most hateful characters are mostly redeemable sufferers of underdeveloped compassion. North (Double Up) indulges in stereotyped depictions of city living and urban gay models, suggesting she’s more at home with fields than gritty streets, but the story’s intimate emotional resonance has an appeal that carries the reader through.
