Review - The Absolutist
Disowned by his family at 16 for a small indiscretion with his boyhood friend, Tristan Sadler spends a year and a half on his own before lying about his age and enlisting in the army to defend England in World War I. At training camp, he quickly becomes friends with Will Bancroft. Tristan is attracted to Will, but he has learned his lesson and keeps his emotions in check. It isn’t until the night before they are shipping out to France that they find comfort in each other’s arms.
