Writing the first-person account of Michael Cassidy, who becomes a Catholic school teacher in the aftermath of the tragic death of his boyfriend, Hoffman balances beautifully lyrical prose with a sensual exploration of people and places. Ashebrook, its warm community and the house inherited from his aunt provide a comfortable haven for Michael, but it's the friendship with neighbouring Butler family and their son Dominic that proves most rewarding. Teacher, friend, soon confidant, Michael understands Dominic's secrets more than anyone in his sheltered Catholic community, but what else can he allow himself to hope for when love offers him a second chance?
A story of love lost, love reborn, redemption and survival, Acclamation is, for the vast majority of readers, the first glimpse into Hoffman's ability to present unique and intense character studies. With powerful yet flawed characters, it is likely that readers will be soon clamouring for the next instalment.
Indie Inklings Ltd founder, Alexandra Nicolaie, said: "I am privileged to have been entrusted with bringing this novel to the market. Like me, some readers will laugh, some will cry, or sigh, or fan themselves occasionally (okay, frequently!) as Michael and Dominic's story is revealed. No reader will want this story to end."
