This is a love story, but not a romance. This is love of a deeper, more visceral kind... and it is beautiful. Hen, Sam and Ishy; love them.
This was not what I was expecting, maybe I should read the blurbs more carefully, but I'm so happy I read it. The subject matter is pretty heavy. It's handled carefully, but it does hurt to read and know that many go through it in real life. The language and *phobia is real and certain to hit sore spots.
It is a touching story of family and the forming of and keeping of one, under the most f#cked up circumstances.
