From the bestselling author of Midwives comes a thought-provoking story about gender, love, and new relationships.

When Allison Banks develops a crush on Dana Stevens, she knows that he will give her what she needs most: attention, gentleness, kindness, passion. Her daughter, Carly, enthusiastically witnesses the change in her mother. But then a few months into their relationship, Dana tells Allison his secret: he has always been certain that he is a woman born into the wrong skin, and soon he will have a sex-change operation. Allison, overwhelmed by the depth of her passion, finds herself unable to leave Dana. By deciding to stay, she finds she must confront questions most people never even consider. Not only will her own life and Carly' s be irrevocably changed, she will have to contend with the outrage of a small Vermont community and come to terms with her lover's new body-hoping against hope that her love will transcend the physical.

A captivating book by Bohjalian, although the terminology is dated in the 21st century.

This book is interesting and informed but not outstanding by any measure. I think the fact that there are so few fiction novels written on trans-sexual issues is part of the appeal.

A touching and amazing story of love and acceptance in the modern family. It's tough to navigate the world of dating, but when you are MTF it's even harder.
