This is a fantastic book. It shows the problems of growing up gay on farms. It reveals the ignorance of farm parents and the adjustments growing up and not knowing what to do about being gay. I read it and realized how my parents created all sorts of problems for me by their silence. And I grew up in a town in Connecticut!!!!! This is a very important work. I'm sending a copy of this book to my hypnotherapist. Armand Auger, M.D.
