Format: Paperback
Early in the days of AIDS the church could be so unkind to those whose suffering came by way of simply living out their life in an authentic way. The greater hurt was not so much the disease as the painful rejection of the person's sexuality. Susan writes so warmly and close to the bone. Her book helped many of us make sense of a hateful disease and period of time where violence was done by way of refusal to accept a person for who they were.

Format: Paperback
I live in Lubbock, Texas, where much of this story takes place, and I happen to know some of the people Dr. Ford mentions. But that was hardly the only reason I wanted to read this compassionate biography. Dr. Ford shows how her brother bravely faced AIDS and the bigotry related to it.
Despite its subject matter, this book is never depressing. Instead, Dr. Ford captures the inspirational aspects of her brother's life and how it touched the lives of people around him. I found her poems about his struggle especially touching and hope she'll share more of those in another book.
