The characters throughout the book are researched perfectly, and are written in such a wonderful way that you truly do fall in love with all them, and really feel everything that they do. The lives of so many different characters within the book are explored in such depth and is written so cleverly, with all of their stories perfectly entwining with one another. The strength of the characters shown in the book is truly inspiring for anyone who faces homophobic prejudice, as the characters are able to find light and faith in the twisted treatment and abuse that they face. They didn’t let their negative experiences with the narrow minded people in the 50s/60s destroy their beliefs.
This book is a true emotional roller coaster. You join the characters through so many highs and lows throughout. Every time they fall, your heart breaks for them and every time they pick themselves back up, you can't help but feel pride. You are able to fully connect with each and every one of the characters because of the fluent and in depth way that they are all written about.
This book touches upon the lives of so many homosexual men and women who were forced to hide who they were, or be beaten for not hiding it. So many people were made to feel disgusted at who they really were and this books shows that so clearly. The way in which homosexuals were treated back then was so sickening. And although people are slightly more accepting now, the battle that you fight alongside the characters in this book is still ongoing.
This book was truly heartbreaking to read, but I would recommend it to anyone who wants to understand what it was truly like to be a homosexual just a mere 60 years ago!
