About the Book
“Eventually, I realised, it wasn’t straight people who reduced homosexuals, men who curbed women, or the rich who oppressed the poor. It was the individual’s own character and lack of courage to be one with their truth that restricted them.” Two best friends, grappling with the many complexities of their lives, find themselves in the middle of chaos caused by unfulfilled expressions and desires. Choked by their secrets and desperate to find answers, they get embroiled in a dark web. In the midst of this turmoil, they believe they have each other.
