    Summary

    “Did you ever dream you had a friend? Someone to last your whole life and you his. I suppose such a thing can’t really happen outside sleep.”
    ― E.M. Forster, Maurice

     

     1925, Shopshire:

    WW1 has left James Fitzjames as the only heir to the Gambier title. When his estranged father dies he must reluctantly leave behind a life of decadence and freedom in 1920s London to take over the remote stately home he grew up in. Luckily his childhood best friend Solomon Tozer (now the local stone mason) is pleased to see him.

    Shades of Maurice, Brideshead Revisited and The Go-Between. Probably ended up a lot more Ken Russell than Merchant Ivory.

    Summary

    And another horse, fiery red, went out.
    And it was granted to the one who sat on it
    to take peace from the earth,
    and that people should kill one another;
    and there was given to him a great sword.
    Revelation 6:4

    Summary

    He smells of paint, just a bit. Hands are cold. “Oh aye?” Sol asks him. “More’n a suck and a fuck, if I wanna bruise that pretty face?” He doesn’t, particularly, but it's worth asking.

    “Well, I need it, see,” the lad says, putting his chilly hands on Sol’s shoulders. “Going concern.” That voice again, like he’s reading from a penny novel. Bless him, he’s lovely, Sol thinks – and all his, for now.

    As ever, Sol Tozer finds himself at war with his better judgement.
