The Gray Line by B.J Cyprian is a well-crafted tale of loss, love, and the undeniable pain of living in a gray zone. When Angel Lamb turns thirty, the discussion between her wife, Bethany Lamb, and herself is centered on getting children. Beth wants to expand their family while Angel is content to celebrate their rights to live as a couple. It is during one of such discussions and while Angel drives that an accident happens that takes Beth’s life. Grief, anger, and self-blame hit Angel so powerfully, and living without her wife is a thought that is unbearable. Thanks to a grief support group, Angel begins to come to terms with the tragedy, and it is then that members of the group begin to disappear in a mysterious way. Angel and some members of the group want answers and they go out to look for those targeting members of the group amidst uncertainty. Follow Angel as she learns new lessons about life and insights that lead her to believe that there are gray areas where one must tread carefully.

This book offers an immersive entertainment experience for readers who enjoy strongly appealing and intelligently written lesbian romance and while readers won’t get anything steamy in this narrative, they will be thrilled by the perfect portrait of two souls that care deeply about each other. When death separates them, the question that lingers in the minds of readers is: Will Angel survive without the love of her life? This is a book about survival after a devastating loss, and the author writes the emotions and the psyche of the protagonist with extraordinary care, filling the pages with her humanity and crafting internal dialogues that make the protagonist an authentic character. The prose is dazzling and the dialogues are real, a reflection of conversations that happen in real life. The enthralling and complex characters ensnared me and captured my full attention and the vivid language offered the music I always want to hear in good writing. The Gray Line presents a plot that is loaded and characters that are unforgettable.
