When a car accident leaves photographer Burke Crenshaw in need of temporary full time care he finds himself back in the one place no forty year old chooses to be his childhood bedroom There in the Vermont home where he grew up Burke begins the long process of recuperation and watches as his widowed father finds happiness in a new relationship that's a constant reminder of everything Burke wants and lacksExploring local history Burk This one didn’t work for me Frankly I thought the story was all over the placeIt started good became boring rather soon then unbelievable and finally uite weirdI liked the beginning Burke’s reluctance to go back to his home town that he had left as uickly as possible after graduating school his realization that he doesn’t really like his friends or his life I was definitely hookedSadly things got boring once Burke arrived in Vermont There was no development to his relationship with his father almost until the end of the book and except for one scene where all truths came out it was uite uneventfulThen nearly everyone in this small town in Vermont was gay Obviously I have no way of knowing what the likelihood of that is but it seems unbelievable to me Anyway I tried to get over it and enjoy the interactions between the characters but that didn’t happen either simply because I found all characters including Burke to be uninteresting I found Sam particularly boring every second line in his conversations with Burke was a uote from a book and eventually that got very annoying I must say there were some interesting parts at this point of the story Burke got involved with 20 years old Will and seeing how he clung to that unsatisfying relationship if it could be called a relationship and tried to persuade himself that it could possibly work out was a strong moment as Burke knew he had reached his lowest pointAnd then the final chapters well without giving much away I’ll just say things got very weird If the whole ‘Destiny’ thing and its rituals were supposed to be something that would finally set Burke free from his inhibitions and help him find a way to commit to a relationship I just couldn’t see it do that Initially I was interested in the mystery of the letters and the photographs but I couldn’t see how this sub plot related to Burke’s story It felt like it was there just to fill the pages In the end I thought this could have been a much better story if the characters and their relations were better developed and explored instead of so much time being devoted to the mystery
