This novel is at once timely and classic. Readers won't be able to help rooting for Pat and Stu as they struggle to conceive a child through surrogacy and fight their family's -- and their own -- preconceived notions of what it means to be gay, all while trying to salvage their rocky relationship. Lowenthal's latest novel ultimately addresses the universal question: What makes a family a family? Deftly told and perfectly paced. Don't miss this one! -- Alise Hamilton, Andover Bookstore, Andover, MA


Having a baby to save a marriage--it's the oldest of cliches. But what if the marriage at risk is a gay one, and having a baby involves a surrogate mother? In one of the first novels to explore the experience of gay men seeking a child through surrogacy, Lowenthal writes passionately about marriages, mistakes, loyalty, and betrayal in a provocative look at the new "family values."
