DISAPPEAR WITH ME
It is done! I have sent Disappear With Me to my editors and anxiously awaiting a decision. It took me four and a half years to get A Place to Call Their Own ready for this point and I did Disappear With Me in about fifteen months. I feel like I'm getting better at this.
Here is a blurb about Disappear With Me:
In 1910, the United Kingdom was in turmoil. King Edward died after only nine years on the throne. The social class system that upheld British society for centuries was being chipped away by social, political, and economic unrest across the Commonwealth. Amidst this backdrop, Reverend Leander Normal is accused of sodomy. After discovering his own self-worth and the meaning of unconditional love, Leander finds the courage to stand up for what he believes is right and pleads not guilty to the charges. Throughout the trial, Leander’s past is revealed, including the temptations that bring the accusations against him. By the end of the trail, Leander is once again reunited with a romantic interest from the past. It may be too late to rekindle any love that might remain, given the circumstances of the era and Leander’s likely sentence. Love is greater than hope or faith, but can Leander convince a jury that the love he shares with another man is natural?
What do you think of the 1910 Edwardian Period in film or books?
