Description
Information
In the vein of Jodi Picoult, a searing, utterly gripping tale of family love, lost and found, in modern America. For four years Matthew Greene and Daniel Rosen have enjoyed a quiet domestic life together in Northhampton, Massachusetts. Matthew, someone who once loved the New York City life, has been surprised to find how comfortable he is with Daniel's quiet, serious intellect. But when they learn the news that Daniel's twin brother and sister-in-law have been killed in a Jerusalem cafe bombing, their lives are changed in an instant. On arriving in Israel, both Matthew and Daniel are beset with challenges and questions that strike at the very heart of their relationship. What is Matthew's real place in Daniel's extended family that doesn't truly accept their commitment to each other? When it's revealed that the deceased parents' will requests that Matthew and Daniel adopt their two children-Gal, a girl aged 6, and Noam, still a baby boy-both families become distraught. But what this does to the two men is also subtle, heartbreaking, and yet not without glimmers of hope and redemption. For throughout any conflict-especially ones involving the human heart-the darkest rage and misunderstandings can sometimes become the road to a new place. Somewhere unexpected, but entirely right and fervently wished for. Matt and Daniel must reinvent themselves and their relationship in profound, sometimes painful ways. What is this new family? What kind of parents can these two men really be? Where is love and how is it weaker-or stronger? With beautifully rounded and achingly honest characters, and a story that feels both very new and as old and primal as parenting itself, this is a profound and moving debut from a very talented new American novelist.
