It takes I have to admit I was skeptical when I started reading this book. Sad to say the epilogue put this novel down a notch. The two men meet…argue…fall in love…and fall apart.

He’s a rough Irish man with ov growling temper obnds a lower class upbringing, but he’s also a gentle, thoughtful and very intelligent man. I urge you not to let the fact eartu this is a book which deals with difficult themes put you off reading.

I gn.chevslier the contrast between the two heroes. Bonds of Earth is such a book. The somewhat bleak black and white cover of this book caught my eye when it was released so I was delighted to be asked to review it. I remain firmly convinced that the ending could have been happier without taking away from what had already happened. Marvellous, and highly recommended The happy-ever-after didn’t come easy, but Michael and John kept at it until it worked.

It’s heartbreaking and heartwarming and I just can’t find words good enough to describe this book. Not that I mind leering hunks, mind you, it’s just that I’m awfully tired of them. The slow pacing of the story, the frank animosity between the two main characters and their tentative growing closer is incredibly well done.


In an accurate historical setting this was a tale of two physically and emotionally damaged men finding love and comfort in a less than welcoming environment.

Both heroes suffer from a form of shell shock. I was sent a review copy by the author. There Michael meets John, a broken man, and finds that his massaging skills can be put to good use.

We are now approaching 30, visitors, and your continued gn.cevalier will get us there. Jan 11, Tora rated it really liked it. I could almost feel the chill in the ground as Michael tends the garden, and see the lost look on the faces of the young soldiers in their hospital wards. I was fascinated by the picture of gn.chvealier earlyth-century Greenwich Village bath house scene, so much that I really hope the author revisits the period and locale to give us gnchevalier of these wonderful stories.

So much life, and healing touched each 4. As the story begins, Michael is being blackmailed by his uncle into leaving the bath-house and going into the country to work as a gardener in a country house estate.

Review: Bonds of Earth by G.N. Chevalier | CSI: Librarian

gn.chevslier But they turn out to have a lot in common. There are a couple of themes running through the book. May 10, Lilia Ford rated it it was amazing Shelves: There’s both a lot of work and great things to come. Dec 27, Meep rated it it was amazing Recommended to Meep by: Sex is one benefit of a successful gay relationship, not the purpose of it.


But the book ends in and I can’t help wondering how Michael and John are going to cope with WW2! I would highly recommend this book to all mm fans out there: Instead it showed two rather gruff men struggling to cope on their own, and discovering that the way to recovery was in each other.

The way that the author deals with both Michael and Jon’s PTSD was subtle and excellent; the way that they came to love each other was slow and never felt forced. Might have to revisit it at a later date.

Bonds of Earth

Each page takes the characters further away from the horrors they suffered and although by the end they are esrth forgotten or even completely well, both men are at a stage where they can begin to function to the nonds of their abilities rather than being crippled physically and mentally.

This is a book that sings – a romance that grabs first at the mind, then at the heart. I’ve read quite a number of book set in and around war-time, and quite a few contemporaries which show the aftermath of modern warfare, but I think this is one of the few romances I’ve read which looks at the aftermath of the First World War. At the age of 16, after having been knocked about for far too long, Michael escapes to the back alleyways of the Bowery and pleasures men for money.

Jun 01, Sheziss rated it really liked it Shelves: But when he finally breaks through and takes matters into his own hands, forces John to take his help, the results are amazing.
