(5/5 stars) I picked up this book as part of Book Riot’s 2018 Read Harder Challenge in order to satisfy the posthumous publication requirement. It’s a beautiful and heart-breaking story of same-sex love and loss. It also has an ambiguous ending a la the movie version of Brokeback Mountain. So, the reader is left wondering about what will happen to Maurice next.
I was traveling for business for about a week recently and fell behind in my book reviews. Sorry!! So, here are a bunch of quick reviews of books I’ve read recently. I’ll try to avoid spoilers, but I can’t make any promises.

“The researchers looked at data for around 21,000 children between the ages of 4 and 17. The National Health Interview Survey includes reports on emotional and mental health, and recently its parameters were updated to include parents’ sexual orientation.” And it turns out that the children of gay parents are just fine.
