Rating: 4 of 5 Stars


“Having quit his job, Idris is trying to make it home to his partner of twelve years, Dan, in time for Christmas. Stuck on a train during a snowstorm, Idris has nothing to do but think back on how much he has missed by putting his career first. His job has been straining their partnership for years, and now Idris worries he’s damaged it beyond repair. He desperately wants to get back to the UK and salvage their relationship—if there’s even anything waiting for him when he gets home.

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2014 Advent Calendar package “”Celebrate!”.

Caroline’s View:

When Idris and Dan meet at College the attraction is immediate and they spend all their time together. When real life intrudes and it’s time to get jobs they cope with long commutes and uncertain parents, the important thing is being together. Idris is promised a promotion if he takes a job in France for 12 months and although Dan is not happy he agrees to wait for him. One year turns into nearly two and the stress of living in different countries is reaching breaking point. When Idris suddenly realises what is important and heads home he prays he hasn’t left it too late. The journey is fraught with hold ups which lead to reminiscing about better times and he realises just what a fool he has been.
