Our First Love was a different kind of love story, Caleb is agoraphobic and lives vicariously through Nigel. The situation is strange but seems to engender very little discord between them initially.
Since the tragic accident that changed their lives forever, brothers Nigel and Caleb have been inseparable; until one woman captures both of their hearts.
There are many secrets layered within this story some by choice and others by circumstance. Caleb was seriously injured in the accident that killed their parents and suffers from psychogenic amnesia as well as severe agoraphobia. Nigel is his only conduit to the outside world beyond what he can see outside his window. It stands to reason that the woman Nigel loves Caleb would too.
Throughout the story most shrouded is the secret that drove politician Barney Aman to take his life. This knowledge weighs heavily enough on Nigel as to make him resign from his post as a journalist which in turn leads him to Karen the woman who will come between the two brothers. Our First Love is an interesting reinvention of the classic love triangle that will appear to many.
