Being together required figuring out what it meant to be gay and in love with another man, in an era when they could be jailed or committed for admitting the desires of their hearts. On a ship at war, their relationship was measured in stolen moments and rare days of precious leave, with no guarantees there would be a tomorrow. And if they survived the war, they would need even more luck to keep their love alive through all the years to come.
This story was written for a photo and story request letter as part of the Goodreads M/M Romance Love is Always Write event. Author royalties will be donated to Lambda Legal, for their continued legal support of the rights of LGBT individuals.
Through their story, we see some of the challenges they face during the years, as the book covers a span of more 60 years. We see the hardship of one man returning home while his loved one is still away at war. We see the difficulties of post war life. And we see them overwhelmed by gay marriage being allowed.
