Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Light at the End of the Tunnel, A Memoir by Sallyanne Monti

Light at the End of the Tunnel: A Memoir

"I enjoyed the writing and the basic premise used to tell this story."

"This memoir had me from the beginning--the family expectations and the questioning of Sallyanne's sexual attratction from the very beginning had me think this was bisexual, until I got deeper into the book.  Fascinating she buried her growing attraction to woman when she married, came to the fore with one little keystroke of fate. Wonderfully written, it's a loving tribute to herself, and a beautiful love story of her relationship with another woman."


This is a to-die-for love story. The 5-star reviews prove that this book is a fantastic love story, for all people. The diverse pool of readers (men and women, gay and straight) consistently say they are immediately drawn into the story, cheering the main characters on, as they are faced with obstacle after obstacle to be together. The book will help people going through the process of falling in love while still married to another, dealing with long-distance romance pain and suffering, and coming out.

Can love conquer all in this true story of fate and destiny, hopeless long-distance love, and coming out? In 1995, Sallyanne Monti was a 34-year-old mother of four, married to her husband of fifteen years, living on Staten Island, New York, an island in the Verrazano Narrows Bay.

When by an act of fate and via a misdirected email, she met Mickey Neill, a 44-year-old human resources manager, married to her husband of twenty years, living 3,000 miles away in Alameda, California, an island in the San Francisco Bay.

The rapid progression of events that led to their whirlwind friendship would test the bonds of matrimony, sexuality, and love. In the wake of a deluge of tears, pain, and dismal reality began the journey known as the Light at the End of the Tunnel.

The tunnel was the three thousand miles that separated them. The light was being connected, preferably in the same two square inches, or more realistically by phone, email, or computer, if only for a day, an hour, or a minute.
