"Tis A Far, Far Better Thing" is a 21st century love story. The story of a man who could not love, a woman who would not. The story of a man who was always a winner in the Game of Love, until it stopped being a game; a woman who had been bruised and broken and told herself she would never open herself to love again. Too late they learn that the Game of Love is a Blood Sport.Gregg Gunderson and Sarah Godwin came together in a blaze of sexual fury. They could not keep their hands off each other, but they agreed to live a life without boundaries. Either could have sex with anyone as long as they kept their affairs away from each other secret. Which was the only way they could stay together. He was a man who fired people and demolished companies for a living, she was a photographer with a touch of genius and an affinity for Barack Obama and the Palestinian cause.Unfortunately, their sexual affairs were the least of the secrets they kept from each other. And those secrets would eventually force Gunderson to make a decision on what he was willing to sacrifice for the woman who destroyed him.This is a story of sex- a lot of sex, love, treachery, broken bones, good friends, a very bad cop, a very good doctor, art, capitalism, Vladimir Putin and the Widow Maker - one of the most dangerous men in the world, pain, secrets and sacrifice.This story is set in the universe of the First Coast stories taking place in Northeast Florida during the dawn of the 21st century. It is not a part of the story line of "When We Were Married," but many of the characters come from that four-volume continuing series.
