A Road Not Taken
Taking the road less travelled may lead you home. Eco-house builder Jascha doesn't think twice about taking in stray animals. Stray people? This would be a first. But there's something about the stranded young man--who's carrying nothing in his car but a hidden gun--that warns Jascha not to leave him alone. Stuck in a soul-sucking bank job, Peter has given up on finding meaning in his life. Long ago he cut himself off from his creative side, unable to get over the feeling that everything about himself is wrong. He thinks there's only one thing left to do--until the pushy, charismatic Jascha happens along what was supposed to be a deserted road, and Peter lets himself be bullied into following him home. In the days that follow, Peter gets more of a crash course in the hippie lifestyle--natural food, meditation, yoga--than he can handle. But every time he begins to relax around his new friend, their spark of attraction twists him back into a ball of nerves. Jascha tells himself it's a mistake to get involved with a man whose gaydar is seriously broken. In spite of everything, love happens. The only question is if love is enough to save both their lonely souls. Warning: Contains an eco-friendly, dreadlocked hippy, strange tofu scrambles and a bathroom you'll never want to leave. Readers may experience the desire to move to the desert, build a "green" home and change the world. Or at the very least, an urge to help Jashca and Peter dry off after one very hot bath scene.
