Ted is an orphan, a young gay man living on the streets following the death of both his parents. Hope seems futile, though hope is exactly what he finds when a surprising email informs him that an unknown wealthy relative has died, that a reading of a will is soon to occur clear across the country. Ted will inherit something, but what that something is remains to be seen.Benny is a young, homeless drug addict, straight except for when cash is involved. Benny has never had a reason to be hopeful about anything until a chance encounter with Ted.Both men are soon traveling together from state to state, making ends meet however they can, rushing to the reading of the will that may or may not change both their lives forever. An unexpected friendship quickly forms, and then just as unexpectedly blossoms into something more as their adventure ultimately leads them to their fates.At turns darkly funny and tragic, deeply erotic and poignant, Ted of the d’Urbervilles uniquely shines a light on the phrase "Love is Love" -- though who they will find it with remains a mystery until the very end.EXCERPT:Note: may contain sexually explicit scenes of a homoerotic nature.
This book is brilliant! Ted and Benny are the kind of endearing, flawed characters you can't help but to cheer on, no matter how dubious their choices. I loved them to the point that I applauded their ingenuity and stretched morals,if only because they stayed safe on the streets.
Their journey put me through the whole gamut of emotions. And while the book might slightly border erotica, Ted and Benny have a deep,intense connection,and a relationship as unique as their personalities. With an added touch of mystery to the plotline,
