Summary

Adam is a delightful 16-year-old who does well in school and spends his spare time practicing the cello. Or that's what his parents think. But there is another side to him, as farmer's son Sylvain discovers when he meets Adam alone in the middle of a wood....

The results of this chance encounter are explosive in this classic, passionate story of illicit romance and teenage sex during one long, hot summer in the French countryside.

A wonderfully written and read gay coming of age story.

I thought this Audible was superbly well done. Anthony McDonald wrote a very believable story and kept the more sexually explicit content expressed with respect and tenderness. I certainly will be waiting for the sequel later this year.
