Plot
This frank memoir chronicles the long journey mother and son took from shame and concealment to acceptance and love. In alternating voices, this poignant book describes the parallel lives of a mother and son during the painful years that they kept silent, even though they both suspected that Chris was gay. Chris tells of his ongoing struggle to change his sexual orientation, and Marlene's attempt to control her son's sexual future.
