Living on the down low in their small Bible Belt town is just a fact
of life for Hank and Beaver, two lovers who’ve been together for
twenty-five years. They’ve always kept to themselves, careful not to
make waves, particularly since their town is home to an infamous
anti-gay preacher and his rabid congregation, who go out of their way
to make sure that not one queer stone is unturned, including the only
gay bar within a hundred miles.
When small town bigotry forces them out of the closet they’ve shared for a quarter century, they find their love, their friends, and their very lives in jeopardy. Everything spirals out of control until at last, backs to the wall,
Hank and Beaver choose to fight back. From the betrayal of friends to
outright violence, they’re not sure if they’ll survive the war with
their hides—and their love—intact.
Sometimes, a bar is more than just a building. Sometimes, it’s a belief.
