Inhaltsangabe zu „The Gentleman and the Lamplighter: A Short Story“ von Summer Devon

THE GENTLEMAN AND THE LAMPLIGHTER is a historical romance NOVELLA about two men from different worlds who find acceptance--and red-hot passion--in each other's arms. From Summer Devon, who writes "gay Victorian romance with emotional tension" (Publishers Weekly).
You Can't Walk Away from Love.
Destroyed by the death of his former schoolmate yet unable to show it publicly, Giles Fullerton has taken to walking the streets of London in the middle of the night, the only time he can safely mourn the only person he's ever loved--until one chance meeting with a lamplighter changes everything....
But You Can Walk Toward It... Widower John Banks knows a thing or two about grief, and immediately recognizes a kindred spirit when he finally meets the handsome, haunted gentleman he's admired from afar. And in fact, the two men discover shared passions and the possibility of a forever love--if they can overcome social taboos, and their own fears....

Cute short-story. Not a lot of plot, but warm and about dealing with loss.

    The Gentleman and the Lamplighter: A Short Story

    Giles Fullerton has taken to wander the streets at night after he lost a friend to suicide. More than a friend, really, but that's not something he can talk about to anyone. One night he makes the acquaintance of the lamplighter John Banks, a gregarious, talkative fellow, and even though their classes are so far apart, they start something of a friendship.It's a cute little short story about loss and grief and starting to life again. There isn't all that much plot or drama, but the story has it's own warmth and feels very sympathetic. Just a heartwarming, happy read.
