I rarely say that a certain story from an anthology is my favorite but this time I am breaking my own rules and saying that Liam Livings’ “Frangipani Kisses” really stole my heart. In it we meet John who just lost his job as an accountant. He decided that until he was ready to look for another position that he would so some volunteer work at a cancer charity shop and he soon made some new friends through this. Keith, his partner, was there for him and John so appreciated it. However, John did feel the desire to make money and Keith told him to use his skills as best he could—not only was John a good accountant, he was a fine baker. What is so lovely in this story is that we meet two men who love and trust each other. This is a love story but without eroticism and we see here that it is indeed possible to depict love without including sex. One lover helps the other and we see more than just love, we see true friendship.
