This is a lovely book. Genuinely lovely, as in found-family, people being good to one another, screwing up and forgiveness and love and reaching out. Community. Things being how they ought to. People not being okay really, but being loved anyway. This stuff goes straight to my tear ducts. Excuse me, I need a hanky.
It's got a central key romance theme--gay couple Singer and Jake in the throes of trying to adopt a baby--but there's two m/f romances as well, one with an asexual. And there's a lot more as well--parental relationships, the family of the baby, friendships, recovery from damage, realisation of lifelong errors. It's very much a book about reaching out and holding on and how hard it is to get stuff right.
And it's compelling. I read it in a day because I had to know how it turned out, although there's no huge dramatic stuff. You just need to know what happens to these people, is all.
In a world that feels increasingly angry and fragmented and bitter, this is a book about people making stuff work. Often out of bad places, but still making it work. I really needed that.
Terrifically written, hugely readable. An Irish coffee of a book--mostly warm and comforting, spiked with seriously grown-up stuff, and makes you feel a hell of a lot better. Massive recommend.
