I never wanted my dad to remarry. The idea of replacing my mom seemed absurd to me, but he went ahead and did it anyway. I don´t know how he could have possibly have ever thought that I would accept them into my world, though. I didn´t want a new mom, and I certainly didn´t want a step brother stealing away my only living parent´s attention. I vowed to myself on the day that they got married that I would always be better than him, that I would always outshine my step brother in every way that I could, so that my dad had no choice but to look at me. Life doesn´t always go to plan though, and I know that know. Things change, and so do people. The only things that are certain in life are what have passed and even then, no one person could ever truly understand the whole story. That´s how I lost the man I loved. That´s how I lost the person who I´d never accepted as a brother, but had always been family to me, and now I need to find a way of getting him back.

When Jamie walks through the door of the Humane Society, it´s not just an animal who needs rescuing that day. Tom is there to adopt another service dog into the Canine Comrade Corps, but it´s Jamie his heart goes out to. But each man turns away, walks away, from the potential pain, the rejection, the knowledge that it´ll all end in tears.... Jamie knows damn well that the HIV he contracted from an unfaithful lover has put him out of the dating game forever in the small town of Santa Vera. Tom lost his legs in Afghanistan, and got new ones, yeah, but with a side order of PTSD to go, he thought grimly. The real problem is that only now does he realize he´s gay, now that the revelation would be just one too many things to put his family through, after everything else they´ve had to deal with. So both men grin and bear the loneliness, put their feelings on a shelf, even as Jamie´s volunteer stint at CCC turns into friendship and, despite their resolve, something more.... Tom saw Jamie´s smile. He´s totally relaxed about this. You´re getting there. This is going to work out, this is going to be a friendship. I need this. To be with normals again, people who aren´t.... Well, the fact was that Jamie wasn´t normal, was he? The fact that he had been through what he´d been through, in Tom´s mind put him on Tom´s side of the world, on the island of broken toys. Someone who could understand, who wasn´t one of them, the ones living a life oblivious to suffering, illness, pain. It´s too bad, Jamie thought calmly. If only I didn´t have the bug, I could do this, I could...well, at least fantasize realistically about this becoming something. People liked it when you were just a little broken, he knew from experience. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Brad Vance.

Travis has more important things to deal with though...like his meeting with an investor who could give him the money to start his massage clinic. They´re both sure that´s the last time they´ll have to deal with each other until a mix-up leads Gary´s ex and Travis´s investor to think they´re an item, which Gary and Travis use to their benefit by posing as a couple around town. Soon, they discover the chemistry between them is off the charts. Travis brings out a sexual confidence Gary didn´t know he had - one Travis enjoys exploring with him.

From the author of the beloved novel Three Junes comes a rich and commanding story about the accidents, both grand and small, that determine our choices in love and marriage. Greenie Duquette, openhearted yet stubborn, devotes most of her passionate attention to her Greenwich Village bakery and her four-year-old son, George. Her husband, Alan, seems to have fallen into a midlife depression, while Walter, a traditional gay man who has become her closest professional ally, is nursing a broken heart.It is at Walter´s restaurant that the visiting governor of New Mexico tastes Greenie´s coconut cake and decides to woo her away from the city to be his chef. For reasons both ambitious and desperate, she accepts, and finds herself heading west without her husband. This impulsive decision will change the course of several lives within and beyond Greenie´s orbit. Alan, alone in New York, must face down his demons; Walter, eager for platonic distraction, takes in his teenage nephew. Yet Walter cannot steer clear of love trouble, and despite his enforced solitude, Alan is still surrounded by women: his powerful sister; an old flame; and an animal lover named Saga, who grapples with demons all her own. As for Greenie, living in the shadow of a charismatic politician leads to a series of unforeseen consequences that separate her from her only child. We watch as folly, chance, and determination pull all these lives together and apart over a year that culminates in the fall of the twin towers at the World Trade Center, an event that will affirm or confound the choices each character has made, or has refused to face.Julia Glass is at her best here, weaving a glorious tapestry of lives and lifetimes, of places and people, revealing the subtle mechanisms behind our most important, and often most fragile, connections to others. In The Whole World Over she has given us another tale that pays tribute to the extraordinary complexities of love. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Ann Marie Lee.
