About the Book:
Follow poet Cheryl Dumesnil and her unlawfully wedded wife as they stumble toward parenthood, through four odds-busting conceptions, three miscarriages, a temporarily legal wedding during San Francisco's Winter of Love, a stint as poster children for the marriage equality movement, and finally the arrival of their longed-for son.
Along the way, in the face of relentless uncertainty, Dumesnil struggles to cultivate some sense of inner peace. Though she wrestles mightily with the opposing forces of hope and fear, in the end, she finds the middle ground between them: acceptance.
Authors Series books are available at the Foothill College Bookstore, and can be purchased at a 20% discount.
