  • A Life Apart on Feb. 01, 2013

    This is another book I wish I could give more than 5 stars. Roger Kean I think you’ve made me speechless and if you were to ask any of my friends that doesn’t happen often. You have written one amazing book and I am truly sorry I’ve come to the end. This book is Gay Fiction not to be confused with M/M Romance. While there are some similarities they are vastly different. It has a true plot which is just as important as the love story between Edward and Richard, without it their story would not have had the effect it did on me. Secrets and lies tore them apart and threw them into an adventure that at times was heartbreaking but there was so much love between them surely fate wouldn’t keep them apart. What happens to them had me crying...a lot, so yes there is angst but there is a lot of emotions in the story that carried me to the end. The historical aspect of the book was so well written I could visualize what was happening as I read, it made me feel like I was part of the story. I haven’t come across a book that has done that in a long time. With A Life Apart every inch of it had me, it is one of those books that I would have read day and night until I got to the end, a story I didn’t want to put down but sadly real life got in my way. If you love to read historical novels you will love A Life Apart and if you have never read one give this one a try it is by far the best I’ve ever read, add to that gorgeous men with passion and romance in their hearts and a beautiful HEA, that of course made me cry, it’s a winner in my eyes. As I mentioned before this novel is very different from M/M Romance its true Gay Fiction written by an author that knows how to tell a story, it’s something I think all that read M/M Romance should read. Thank you Mr. Kean highly recommends.
