Toto, is a short story sequel to The Summer of the Firefly, and is a bittersweet tale of a young teen who has fallen in love with his best friend.  His world is shattered by discovery and rejection by his father.  Gianni and Angelo, two slightly older gay men, help him rebuild his strength and confidence to once again face the future.  James Carnarvon is a highly skilled wordsmith that has created a beautiful world of verdant mountains and valleys along the Amalfi coast of Italy.  Ravello is a town high in these hills that seems remote from urban life and its rush.  The story is compelling and the characters engaging, fit for a lazy summer afternoon in the shade with a glass of Italian wine.  Excellent reading to gauge the wonderful skills of this writer, but a spoiler if you don't read The Summer of the Firefly first.
