Millington, an ex-Methodist minister who once believed he could be celibate, thought he had resolved the issues that made him leave

Less than an hour after Millington receives his permanent resident visa, he wonders if his husband Jay would now end their marriage. And Jay has multiple reasons to. Millington is an ex-Methodist minister, who once believed he could be celibate. When he fled Caribbean Methodism and came to Montreal, he thought he’d resolved the issues that made him leave, but he comes to understand that psychological trauma, childhood conditioning, parental and community expectations and his own need for community and family valorization are not easily exorcised. The third installment in the No Safeguards quartet of novels.


"I found this a compelling account of a gay man’s journey toward living an authentic life after the damage of a Caribbean upbringing shaped by religious intolerance. A major contribution by H. Nigel Thomas to a topic that has been little explored." —Olive Senior, author of The Pain Tree; Laureate: Commonwealth Literature Prize and The Writers’ Trust Matt Cohen Award
