Author’s Summary

The setting Miami and the beginning time period a turbulent one, 1971, Gables Court is a Coming-of-age novel spanning ten years in the life of Samuel Baas , a young lawyer who wants love before sex. Although the language is adult, the scenes of intimacy aren’t graphic. At its core, this is a story about the resilience of the human spirit.

Age 24, Baas is a romantic and virgin. After moving from staid New England to the hothouse world of Miami, he falls in love with Kate, the college girl he wants to marry. She isn’t interested. For her, sex is recreational.

A lawyer, Baas represents an accused Nazi war criminal and Haitians who, if deported, face retribution from the murderous Tonton Macoute. Head of a crime family, his father takes a special interest in his son’s legal career. In this complicated world, Baas dates and tries to answer the central question in his life,

“Is love for someone else?”

Loneliness isn’t gender specific nor is alienation just a phase.

In Gables Court, Samuel Baas journeys toward true intimacy—and his people.

The novel isn’t intended to moralize about what is right or wrong. Without borders or mass, a mixture of joy, heartache, confusion, and mystery, love follows its own rules. Finding love and accepting it requires strapping ourselves in for the ride.
