A Summer Without Rain
In 1920 s Ireland, Shannon understands all too well that the love and hunger he feels for his best friend, Ciaran, is forbidden. He s already shunned by his town and emotionally damaged from enduring painful confessions after a male teacher s molestation at age fourteen. But when he finds Ciaran grieving over the sudden death of his mother in a barn, a hasty and desperate embrace shatters an unspoken boundary between them.
Shannon and Ciaran are sent on a journey to Dublin to bring a family heirloom to Ciaran s aunt. Along the way, a drunken evening leads to an illicit act in a hotel room, confusing Ciaran and forcing them both down a treacherous path of deceit and desire. Can love overcome the obstacles of Irish society, the Catholic Church, and political unrest?
