Rich Matheson is so deep in the closet, he did not believe he would ever come out. Meeting and intimately getting to know openly gay Matthew Clark inspired Rich to leave the closet behind, as well as seek a long term relationship with Matthew.

Broken Silence is the second book in the Broken trilogy. The setting is Northern Ontario, in an area considered the hillbillies of Canada. Most of the town’s people are members of the Catholic Church; however, not all of the people believe being born gay is a sin. The characters are believable. From childhood, Rich knew he was expected to takeover the family tavern business when he was an adult. Because of this, everything in Rich’s life was limited to family, friends and the social attitudes of Northern Ontario. Matthew came from Toronto where the social climate was more accepting including his loving parents. Matthew’s nursing career was his choice, which is why his family thought he would be the best one to move north to take care of the aunt.

The dilemma of the main characters is especially heartwarming. However, the communications with the over-the-top secondary characters is hilarious. I very much enjoyed Broken Silence.
