Fifteen years ago, golden boy actor Holland Faust was
attacked by a psychotic fan. The damage done by the knife
destroyed his breathtaking, box office face, as well as his
soul. Holland lives the life of a recluse these days on a
private island off the New England coastline with a dog
named Rex as his companion.
Each summer Hol has an intern help him decide who is
deserving of financial aid from the Faust Charitable
Foundation and this year his agent sends the highly
qualified Ruby Keagan. Hol has a standing order with his
agent to not send any male internsÖever. Ruby may be a
girlís name, but the person Hol meets certainly isnít
female. Just to make it more interesting, Ruby isnít loud
about it, although heís definitely out of the closet.
All these many years Hol has managed to keep the press from
knowing that heís gay. Holís dated women exclusively up
until the accident realizing that he was condemning himself
to never finding love. But Ruby, with his winsome looks and
his mile wide heart, manages to slowly chip away at the many
ghosts that Holland carries with him. From the scars on his
face to the lack of confidence in his acting talent, Holland
is beginning to open up because of Ruby. This summer
internship will be life altering on so many levels if they
both have the courage to see things through to the end.
Incredibly moving and beautifully written, Solitude
and Sea Glass is a tour de force love story.
Holland is a shattered soul and Ruby is the glue. Both
characters practically leap off the pages as their story
unfolds. Solitude and Sea Glass runs the
emotional gamut with these two men from angst and heart
break to spirit and joy. The sex scenes are told with a
light touch, with loving prose as opposed to detailed
description. Solitude and Sea Glass is pure
romance. I Joyfully Recommend Solitude and Sea Glass.
