Kaje Harper's Fair Isn't Life is an amazing story.
Luke struggles with grief, loneliness, and is just trying to get enough work to make ends meet.
Working at the fair, Luke runs into a former friend, Mason. Mason's life is completely different than Luke's, as he's in college, living a typical college student's life.
Mason's openly gay, while Luke has been in the closet. Luke, who'd been targeted for being big and stupid, didn't want to give people one more reason to bully him.
Their story is beautiful and tender; a story of overcoming grief and hardships and accepting love. Mason and Luke are clearly so good together, and I appreciate the ways in which the author helps them to fit into one another's lives.
The author includes a knowledgeable and harsh look into the current economy and way of life facing farmers. This part is both enlightening and somber.
Fair Isn't Life is written well, with a whole lot of heart and care. Kaje Harper does a wonderful job with this remarkable romance.
