Dymion and Haynes Gately row down a river but travel very different paths. Haynes’s great expectations and Dymion’s struggle for purpose have created a distance between them filled with tension. Now, secret feelings emerge, and an odd occurrence leads to a mysterious encounter with an angelic figure. Can Dymion and Haynes continue their journey as the dearest of brothers, or has the time come for them to live their separate lives?
The Seat of Gately employs Victorian flare to create an alternate supernatural world where etiquette rules society and scandals can destroy fortunes. Illicit desires overcome a complex cast of characters with profoundly comedic and tragic consequences. These literary fantasy stories explore issues such as gender, class, and sexuality in revelations of wit and naughtiness.
