A Place Called Winter


Product Description

From this bestselling gay author comes an irresistible, searching and poignant historical novel of love, relationships, secrets and escape.

Early 20th century: shy, awkward Harry Cane allows his confident younger brother Jack to arrange a marriage with his wife’s sister. But a chance encounter with a handsome actor leads Harry into a passionate same-sex affair. This illicit liaison continues for more than a year, only to be undone by a careless mistake. Faced with disgrace and possibly gaol, Harry must exile himself from his family and immigrate to Canada, although he is a most unlikely farmer and settler. 

Remote and unforgiving, his allotted homestead in a place called Winter is a world away from the golden suburbs of turn-of-the-century Edwardian England. And yet it is here, isolated in a seemingly harsh landscape, under the threat of war, madness and an evil man of undeniable magnetism that the fight for survival will reveal in Harry an inner strength and capacity for love beyond anything he has ever known before.

In this exquisite journey of self-discovery, loosely based on a real life family mystery, Patrick Gale has created an epic, intimate human drama, both brutal and breathtaking. It is a novel of secrets, sexuality and, ultimately, of great love. The historical detail, finely drawn characters, vivid settings, and pace of the narrative combine to make this a superlative read. Highly recommended.
