Road Without End by Ron Kearse

ImageIt’s the spring of 1979 and change is in the air. The disco
craze is waning as is the heyday of gay liberation, and an invisible beast called AIDS has yet to make itself known. In the midst of all this, an adventure begins for two young men.
Recently laid off from his job in a small Ontario town, Neil
is looking for a change in his life. Contemplating what to do
next he meets Bryn, a young officer facing personal struggles of his own. Their adventure begins, as they travel west across Canada seeking a new life together. But societal pressure is not as kind to them as they are to each other, and rifts begin to appear.
These are two separate stories about Neil and Bryn, as their lives intertwine, part, then carry on to new adventures. It is a story of acceptance and bravery while under fire for living one’s life freely along life’s road without end.

Road Without End is Ron Kearse’s inaugural book in a two-part series, and it’s quite worth reading, particularly for a first work. He captures the late 70s/early 80s zeitgeist masterfully, using the stories of two young Ontario men, Neil and Bryn, who are coming to grips with their sexuality and the challenges posed by the anti-gay bigotry of the time. You can’t help but feel their pain and their joy as they make their way through. As this is the first part, and we won’t know what happens to Bryn and Neil until the second half publishes, all we can do is urge Mr. Kearse to keep writing. Buy this book, and you’ll find yourself hooked.

Great book! Good Canadian content, the story takes place from Ontario to the west of Canada. It is about coming out and finding ones self.
