Summary

They lived happily ever after - the last line of every fairy tale, every romance. But how happily can you live? How long can "ever after" last? 

This third and final audiobook in the Dog in the Chapel series finds Tom and Christopher still together during the middle section of their lives: a very ordinary couple living in France. But there are challenges aplenty to face: disaster aboard a big ship; the tiniest of enemies, the AIDS virus. The struggle to make a living renovating Dordogne cottages; the task of making relationships work. 

Their life could be your life, actually. Could be anybody’s - gay or straight.

So moving and life-affirming

I’ve adored this trilogy and listened avidly for hour after hour; smiling , worrying , crying and rejoicing. I loved the slightly understated telling and piano interludes and felt very keenly the lives and love of Christopher and Tom and wanted them to go on forever. I think what was most special was the community of dear friends who clearly loved them and stayed with them on their beautiful journey of life together - so life-affirming.
