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?
Praise for Acclamation
“There was passion, pain, love and happiness. But this was mixed up with grief, trepidation, bravery and acceptance. All of this, in addition to well developed and complex characters, realistic dialog, great humor and an array of well placed events, made Acclamation an amazing and very touching read.” (October 2012, LeAnn’s Book Reviews)
“…Vee Hoffman keeps things on an even keel, guiding her readers through the rushing waters of secrets, uncertainties and fresh desires with a deft hand. She writes some of the best descriptions of love, in its many incarnations, that I’ve read, and delivers a fascinating take on a life that’s intriguing for all its simplicity. Acclamation is a slow, sweet romance that asks for your full attention, and the payout if you give it is well worth your time.” (October 2012, Bending the Bookshelf blog)
