"That You Are Here is a love story that happens to be about two men," Allard says. "It's really that simple."
LAS VEGAS, NV, February 12, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Ask author Meredith Allard about her bestselling Loving Husband Trilogy, and she'll tell you how James Wentworth struggles as a paranormal being in a human world. Ask about her newest release, That You Are Here, and she'll tell you that the two romantic leads, Andrew Whittaker and Mark Bryce, also struggle to make sense of their place in the world.
If you agree with anything anyone on Duck Dynasty has ever said, you will not like That You Are Here. If, however, you believe that all human beings are in fact human beings, and that all human beings fall in love, then That You Are Here might be right up your alley.
"It's no surprise that That You Are Here is a love story," Allard says. "All of my novels are love stories in one way or another. The surprise might be that That You Are Here is a completely present-day story when I'm most known for historical fiction. Or, the surprise might be that the romantic leads are both men. Andrew Whittaker and Mark Bryce have quite a journey to travel together, and I hope they are a couple readers cheer for. No matter who you are, you have to learn how to be comfortable in your own skin. That's the challenge that faces Andrew Whittaker. He needs to come to terms with the fact that he's in love with another man in order to find peace within himself."
Allard says That You Are Here is her way of adding her voice alongside others who think that people who are in love should be able to get married.
On the outside, handsome, successful attorney Andrew Whittaker has everything in life. On the inside, he has everything too, only he doesn't know it. He hides the love of his life, Mark Bryce, from his family and everyone else where he lives in Portland, Oregon. Soon the weight of the secret becomes too much for Andrew. After wrestling with himself and his place in the world, he must decide how he's going to live--with or without Mark.
