Rachel N. | 1469 comments The story of Cyril Avery, a homosexual man growing up in the 1950's and 60's in Ireland. The book visits Cyril's life every seven years, though the first chapter is really the story of his mother and his birth. Cyril is adopted by Charles and Maude Avery and he lives in country where he is told there are no homosexuals. There is a lot of humor in the book but also places where I cried my eyes out, especially the chapter set in the 1980's and the end of the book. A wonderful story of love, family and accepting yourself.

Nicole R (drnicoler) | 7758 comments YYYEESSSS! I am so glad to see 5 star reviews for this book. I also cried my eyes out but I felt such closure at the end. It was a satisfying story full of love and heartache, and an unconventional family.

I have been shoving this book at people ever since I read it.
