The HomePort Journals by A.C. Burch

The Homeport Journals, written by AC Burch, is an absolutely lovely story.  There’s romantic love, familial love, and a clear love of the quaint town of Provincetown.  Marc Nugent escaped from a traumatic experience involving his now ex-boyfriend, but he felt a bit lost and alone.  With time and with the hilarious and charismatic Helena, the snarky, yet adorable older ladies, Lola and Dorrie and the efferevescent and artistic aura of Provincetown, Marc overcame his fears and saw his life blossom.  Helena played such a fascinating role in the story.  Not only was she a highly lively character, but one might say she was a master of disguise.  The familial love that Lola and Dorrie developed for the young men in this story was quite heartwarming. When Marc faced the challenges of new suitors, as well as his former boyfriend showing up, the support he discovered in his new “family” was beautiful.

Wow, The Homeport Journals runs deep and wide.  In fact, my brief review just can’t do it justice.  From the very beginning, AC Burch offers readers a clear, flowing description that makes one see the houses, the views and the overall picturesque setting of Provincetown.  This elegant writing style continues through the entire story.  In fact, I fell in love with this little piece of paradise just by reading The Homeport Journals.  On top of that, AC has such skill in the way he writes that the characters are very easy to visualize and remember.  I just didn’t want to put The Homeport Journals down.  I continue to laugh, smile, and chuckle and feel my heart warm as I reflect back on the story as I write this review.  I truly hope that AC Burch releases a sequel to The Homeport Journals because I would love to read the next one.  Highly recommended!
