Broken Hearts

gay love romance 19th century


In the dusty attic of his rented townhouse, Lucas Berkley is packing the last of his belongings, when he finds his old, forgotten leather-bound journal, written more than a decade earlier.

The ink is still readable on the faded pages and parts of the diary are written in a secret code, which only Lucas can read.

This is the beginning of a story about searching for rare wild orchids in the forest outside Oxford and about a young man falling in love for the first time without even realising it himself...

First 100 words:

“Lucas Berkeley paused to light the drip candle before he climbed the narrow staircase that led to the attic of the townhouse he had rented for the last decade at Paddington in London.

The candle flickered a couple of times before it took fire and burned more strongly. Tiny particles of dust danced in the last sunlight of the day from the small rectangular window at the short end of the room, but most of the room rested in shadows.

The smell of mould and soot from the brick chimney were quite distinct, and it tickled his nose.”
