It would be hard to imagine parents more perfect than Claire and Theo. In the mid-l960s, in a rambling apartment overlooking Central Park West, they raise their son Willy with enthusiasm, encouragement, and with what might today be called unconditional love. It might also be called unconventional love, for both Claire and Theo are women. They are Willy’s mothers and until a mistrustful outside world intrudes to try to tear them apart, they are the best family a boy could want. In an enchanting, moving novel, Jax Peters Lowell explores the powerful bonds of love and family and gives us a cautionary tale for our own times.
