The Imperfection of Swans by Brandon Witt Audiobook Review

Kevin Bivanti’s dream is to open a wedding dress shop, a place with the stunning gowns to make every bride-to-be feel adored. At thirty-eight, he quits a successful advertising career to buy an old brownstone in a trendy Boston neighborhood and to make his dream a reality. When one of his cosigners drops out, fate intervenes, ushering in Casper James, who hopes to open his own bakery. With Casper willing to take the risk, their ambitions meld into a wedding dress and wedding cake boutique.

Extensive renovations to the brownstone, an affair with his ex-husband, family drama with his mothers, and the anxiety of significant life changes push Kevin to the brink of a nervous breakdown. In the midst of stress and uncertainty, Casper becomes more than a business partner, a mutual attraction that adds another layer of intensity and risk.

With their dreams on the verge of reality, Kevin and Casper must find the courage to face the stress of managing their attraction, the gamble of a new business venture, and the resurgence of Kevin’s personal demons.

I don't often listen to audiobooks, but am really glad that I chose to listen to this one, because style-wise it worked particularly well for me. It is more descriptive than dialogue driven, which made it ideal listening material.

This is a story which deals with some difficult issues, has some lovely humour, and has a sweet and meaningful romance. At its heart, for me, was a man who had a dream and an amazing family who supported it. And, as it turns out, Casper and his plans may just be the perfect fit for him too.

Whilst this is a long story, and there is a lot of getting the place ready, (something which I fully enjoyed, but did draw out what I had assumed was more of a simple romance) this is a worthwhile read, and has a very uplifting theme by the end. It did not hurt that I had read that this is based on a true story of one of the author's friends. Because after all, we can't help but love a happy ending!

BRANDON WITT’s outlook on life is greatly impacted by his first eighteen years of growing up gay in a small town in the Ozarks, as well as fifteen years as a counselor and special education teacher for students with severe emotional disabilities. Add to that his obsession with corgis and mermaids, then factor in an unhealthy love affair with cheeseburgers, and you realize that with all those issues, he’s got plenty to write about…
