The Handyman's Dream is a Midwestern gay romance set in the early 1980's.

As a 50 something Michigan born and bred gay man it's a story that could easily have been mine.

The handyman and the postman are two nice guys with real family values. It's good solid feel-good read and has some novel aspects. Admittedly it's not of the can't put it down variety but it is very affirming and you definately like these characters after just a few pages. As with much of midwestern life it's nice and comfortable and not as thrilling as a big city story but still it speaks to those with the patience to listen.

If you can get over the absence of death and mayhem and jeopardy on every page then you might just enjoy the quiet contentment that this book contains.
