(Entertainment-NewsWire.com, August 31, 2022 ) Denver, CO and Los Angeles, CA – Outskirts Press—the fastest-growing, full-service self-publishing and book marketing company—is pleased to announce the release of Mark Albro’s Underneath the Quiet, a novel with LGBTQ+ themes, set in 1932.
Underneath the Quiet is a novel about sisters, families and the quest for love during the Great Depression. Affluent Riverside, California, the heart of the country's citrus industry, is the canvas on which the characters' lives are painted. Maureen Callahan, who is autistic, lives in the shadow of her older sister Bertha, until her world is expanded by the arrival of a wealthy young gay man, Cuthbert, from New York. While Cuthbert finds love in the unexpected arms of a man who has been riding the rails from San Antonio, things prove more difficult for Maureen. With the crack of a whip, the novel ends in another American tragedy, and yet the world continues spinning.
“Underneath the Quiet is about the world as we choose to see it, and the world as it chooses to see us,” Mark Albro explains. “This is a novel about money, people, love, hate and intolerance—a novel about all of us.”
