Van makes himself into a scarecrow. Flannel shirts, overalls, and a ridiculous top hat. All this is his facade, so the world and it’s people will ignore him. Abused in his own home, broken inside, he just wants to be left alone. But his camouflage just keeps bringing him trouble.

Into his isolated world steps George C, also broken, abused, and scared. Together they might make a whole person. They just have to give the love and trust that the other needs so badly.

I’ve never been a fan of books where the character talks to the readers. Took a little while to get used to that. Once I got into the book I didn’t really notice It anymore. The author created two men who really were memorable. I enjoyed their tentative overtures toward friendship. Both stepping out of their comfort zone to help the other. The love developed slowly.

Their story was emotional, heartbreaking, and ultimately satisfying.
