   "Mark liked to think he embraced the Buddhist concept of
   impermanen
ce, but he wished it would leave his actual life well
   enough alone. Instead, everything was about to change."
 
 
     While visiting his estranged father in Europe, nineteen-year-old
 Mark meets Jacques, a young Parisian socialite who 
performs        as a drag queen. Conflicted by the undeniable attraction,            Mark returns to his home country of Kenya—only to 
 learn from Jacques that their mutual friend, John, has attempted    suicide.
     Accompanying Jacques to England, Mark soon finds himself    falling in love. While John struggles with his manic-depression,    Mark and Jacques begin an explosive affair that threatens to        engulf them both.

     When Mark’s violent temper erupts, he flees to his Native      American grandmother in the Plains, where he works with a          shaman and discovers things about himself he never knew        were  possible.
     Eventually Mark and Jacques meet up again in England. While    their passion is instantly rekindled, Jacques now hesitates to    trust his heart. Can people really change? What is the power of    this thing we call love?
