From the bestselling author of Midwives comes a thought-provoking story about gender, love, and new relationships.
When Allison Banks develops a crush on Dana Stevens, she knows that he will give her what she needs most: attention, gentleness, kindness, passion. Her daughter, Carly, enthusiastically witnesses the change in her mother. But then a few months into their relationship, Dana tells Allison his secret: he has always been certain that he is a woman born into the wrong skin, and soon he will have a sex-change operation. Allison, overwhelmed by the depth of her passion, finds herself unable to leave Dana. By deciding to stay, she finds she must confront questions most people never even consider. Not only will her own life and Carly’s be irrevocably changed, she will have to contend with the outrage of a small Vermont community and come to terms with her lover’s new body–hoping against hope that her love will transcend the physical.
Another great one
A seamless story that pulled me into the character's lives as if I was there with them. The story warmed my heart, made me sad, and sent my mind wandering. I was forced to question my own beliefs as Allison worked through her own feelings and decisions. Every time I had to stop reading, I was anxious and curious about what was to come...and I did not predict that ending!
