Book description
Two men living as lovers in 18th century America face fear, prejudice...and death. Banished from England and forced to work as indentured servants in Colonial Virginia, Lance Morley and Adam Bradley share a secret that could cost them their lives. Their unbreakable bond - and the friendships they form with kindred spirits in nearby Williamsburg and far away Philadelphia - help them face down fear, prejudice and the constant threat that their secret will be exposed. "Virginia Bedfellows" reveals how much, and how little, society's attitudes toward the love between two men have changed since the 18th century. This gripping story, told in rich, historical detail, follows Adam, a cultured and level-headed plantation manager, with a head for business and a heart for much more, and the fiery, hot-tempered Lance, a cordwainer who isn't afraid to use his hands for something besides working with leather. Thrown together by fate, held together by love, they long for the day they'll be free from servitude - and free from the hard stares and harsh whispers they must endure. Joyful, sad, erotic and suspenseful, "Virginia Bedfellows", based on the author's research on indentured servants, plantation life and homosexuality in Colonial Williamsburg, offers a rare look at the lives of gay men living - and loving - in the 18th century.
