Synopsis: At 26 years old, Hunter Carlisle has a successful sales career, a devoted girlfriend, and rock-solid faith. He also guards a secret torment: an attraction to other men. When a career plunge causes muscle tension, Hunter seeks relief through Gabe Hellman, a handsome massage therapist. What begins as friendship takes a sudden turn and forces the two friends to reconsider the boundaries of attraction. Along the road to self-discovery, Hunter's secret is exposed to the community. Now Hunter must face the demons of his past and confront his long-held fears about reputation, sexual identity, and matters of soul. A story of faith, fire and restoration, "Between These Walls" braves the crossroads of love and religion to question who we are and who we will become.

Critique: Addressing adult themes that resonate with our current national dialogue on such issues as gay marriage, the generational divide with respect to acceptance of gay life styles, and a compelling read from beginning to end, "Between These Walls" is written and recommended for a mainstream readership--not just the gay community. This is a sophisticated and deftly crafted novel of faith occurs within a true-to-life context of redemption--and contains adult language and content. Very highly recommended, it should be noted that "Between These Walls" is also available in a Kindle edition ($4.99).
