Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for A CRACK IN FOREVER by Jeannie Brewer.

"Part contemporary romance, part tragic love story, Brewer's debut should have broad appeal. Alexandra Taylor draws human figures for academic books. When a sexy, sensitive, medical student named Eric Moro shows up at her door - he's to be her nude model - Alex recoils at first at Eric's easygoing charm, then falls wildly in love. But their breathless romance is altered forever when Eric announces that a routine AIDS test has shown up positive. Alex struggles with Eric's physical demise and her own terror over his impending death. A subplot involving Eric's frosty relationship with his staunchly Catholic father provides tension and an additional tragic twist. The novel's strengths lie in Brewer's well-paced storytelling and her use of her own experiences (she has served as Associate Medical Director of a prominent AIDS clinic), which lend authenticity and vivid detail to her love story.”
- Publishers Weekly (US)

"The first half of Brewer's novel sweeps readers up with its intense, minute rendering of a passionate love affair between medical student Eric Moro and artist Alexandra Taylor, whom he meets when modeling for a textbook she is illustrating. Brewer catches well the small, telling moments in the development of love, from initial sensual stirrings through passionate involvement to long-lasting commitment. When Eric learns he has AIDS, Alexandra must contact Eric's rigid, judgmental family. An emotionally touching story told with exquisite care, this novel may also prove to be the one that communicates the agony of AIDS to mainstream, heterosexual readers more effectively than the many gay-themed books concerned with it."
