MothersBook - 1995
It would be hard to imagine parents more perfect than Claire and Theo. In the mid-1960's, in a rambling apartment overlooking Central Park West, they raise their son Willy with enthusiasm, encouragement, and 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 debut, Jax Peters Lowell explores the powerful bonds of love and family, and creates characters who will remain in your heart long after the final page is turned.
