Charlie is a travel writer with a "love 'em and leave 'em" motto and he has no intention of settling down. That is, until Matthieu, a man he meets while starting his newest assignment. Matthieu has found his roots early in life - making wine alongside his family on land that has seen generations do the same - and he really does not want to leave. As they spend time together and with Matthieu's family, their love grows. Their natures, however, may sunder their relationship unless one surrenders. Will one of them be able to raise the white flag? Who will it be - the wanderer or the deeply rooted tree?
White Flag is a very nice story about opposites attracting, obligations, and looking for a path that does not necessarily have to be either/or. It is a story about finding love when least expected and seeing if compromise does not necessarily mean either side giving up any portion of themselves and still winning. White Flag is an definite A+ read.
Charlie is a nomad, a travel writer who will never settle down. Easy come, easy go: all his boyfriends have been flings or one-night stands. "Love them and leave them" is his motto, the rule he lives by. Until he meets Matthieu one day, by the side of a French canal. After a long hot night together, Charlie realises that this is at last the man he wants to keep, the perfect companion for his wanderlust life.
Matt is a beauty, a treasure, a joy—a man who knows just where he belongs, and means to stay there. His family has made wine here for generations; this valley is his home, and not even his passion for Charlie can shift him.
There can be no doubt of their love, but their own natures contrive to pull them apart—unless one surrenders. But will rolling stone or rooted tree raise the white flag?
