There’s nothing like a song to add a touch of something special to a scene from a book or movie. And knowing a character’s musical tastes tells me so much about them and their state of mind. If you’re curious about Carl Cimino here’s a great way to get a peek into his soul. Feel free to listen now or save the playlist for while you read the book. Either way you’re in for some great songs!
Songs Of A Red Currant Wine
No matter how far you go, love will always lead you home again.
The world has changed quite a bit since Carl Cimino was a young man in Port Plechard. The small Connecticut coastal town once had everything that he held dear: his family, his friends, his hockey team, his school, and his first love, Mike Rinnert. Back then gay boys didn’t parade along the rocky shores in bright rainbow swim trunks. They hid their shame then moved away or married a nice girl and pretended to be happy. After a dismal marriage attempt and a lackluster playing career that ended with an equally unsatisfying coaching job, Carl is called back to Port Plechard to attend Mike’s funeral and swears that he’s just seen a ghost.
