Reading the bio of this author, you learn he is indeed leaving in historic Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and so I assume the feeling of this small town is real life experience, a real life experience that would be nice to enjoy.

It’s not that there is no drama in Carlisle, it’s only that every drama seems manageable, something you can face and deal with your own strength and with a little help from your friends. Losing a job, dealing with an illness, growing without a parent, graduating and having a successful career, opening your business… everything you want, you can.

Robert is only 30 years old and he is already a judge for his county. He is also gay and a virgin, having spent all his earlier years committed to his studies and career, and maybe being also a little shy. Sebastian is more or less same age, but he played the field; he is no stupid at all, and from a good family, who supported him, but he decided to skip college and enjoy life.

Robert and Sebastian balance each other, even if, actually, Sebastian’s worry is that Robert will want to play the field as well before setting down with one man; and moreover, that Robert will realize that a simple waiter is not match for a county judge. But Robert sees in Sebastian everything he wants and desires, and Sebastian is really patient and kind with him, letting him take the steps at his own pace, kindly pushing him when it’s necessary but also stepping back when Robert has the feel they are hurrying too fast towards the unknown paths.

As I said, each drama is manageable, like when public opinion will try to question Robert’s private life; but this is not a big coming out story, there is no huge scandal and tears and separation. Sure, it’s not easy for Robert, and above all not pleasant, but they will manage together to overcome also this situation. Same for the illness of one of their friends or for any other trouble, the right solution is always there, ready for them to catch it.
