Out of Hiding - Mia Kerick
Author Mia Kerick delves deeply into the idea of loss and its resulting effects on the mind of children when she takes on the character of Phillipe Bergeron. With his mother’s death at the age of ten, he withdraws inside himself, becoming suicidal and finally, simply shutting down all emotions that may lead him to love another person so completely ever again. His young mind will set the stage for a future that requires him to hide away, never engaging his heart in such a way that would allow him to let another person really see him or love him. Phillipe’s misguided belief that his remaining apart from his family and never entertaining intimacy with another man beyond mutual getting off, lands him in a solitary life, devoid of friends, and alone.
