A Brief History of Longing
By Jea Hawkins
We've all known that one person - the one we wanted, but couldn't have. The best friend.
Gwen’s been in love with her best friend since high school, but now that they’re growing up, she wonders if it’s time to look elsewhere for both friendship and romance. Without even realizing she’s doing it, Gwen recounts twenty years of longing in sketches that launch the comic book career she’s always wanted.
In this story about love and loyalty, friendship is tested, broken, and mended. Because as Gwen moves forward with her life, she realizes there is no forgetting that first person who ignited desire and frustration, melancholy and love.
There is no letting go of the hope that someday, they might find one another again. But sometimes you’ve got to risk a broken heart in order to find your one true love.
