Word Count: 22,432
Following the death of his mother, Patrick Kane is raised in the strict religious world of his father. It’s a world of fundamentalists, conservatism, and no tolerance. It’s a world where Patrick Kane grows up knowing his sexual orientation can only lead to a tragic end if he stays in his father’s church.
For Jonathan Toews, his faith is the foundation on his world. An answered prayer to save his brother’s life leads Jonathan down the road towards the priesthood. Jonathan is determined to suppress his feelings which go against the teachings of his church. A life of celibacy will be a life without temptations. Or so Jonathan thinks. Then Jonathan meets the son of a preacher man and everything changes.
