A story of gay love and romance in northern Spain
Using their two-perspective approach of coauthoring, American author, habu, brings the retiring American lawyer, Paul, to Spain's Galicia region in hopeless pursuit of love of a younger Spanish guitarist, and Australian author, Sabb, in turn, has brought the younger Australian, Alex, to Galicia by way of England and as secretary to a Spanish-British author who has returned to Galicia to die. As the two move closer together through networking and the process of rebuilding their lives in their new habitat, Paul goes through a succession of emotionally unsatisfying casual affairs and the frustration of renovating a derelict village house. At the same time, Alex has casual affairs of his own while turning the sprawling mansion he has inherited into a B&B. Both, in their more mature phase of lifeand whether they consciously understand it or notare seeking a more stable relationship. And quite possibly, without knowing it, they are finding what they need as they drift toward each other.
