Wow, Sarah Black has my number on this lovely short story. When I choose to read a story that I tag "age gap", I always worry that it might be a bit uncomfortable for me. In this case the gap is forty years and the discomfort started to rear it's ugly head. Happily it was short-lived.

The relationship between William and the much younger Tommy is not about sex, though they do indulge on occasion, it's more about a tender and loving relationship between two lonely souls. They support each other in many ways. And when push comes to shove and Tommy is in trouble, the reclusive and timid William will do whatever it takes to see Tommy safe.

Even now, Flamingo tugs at my heart as I write this review and I am amazed at how deeply I felt their bond. It's simply a wonderful love story. Highly recommend.
