Editorial Reviews


"In a rare peek into the life of a “polykid” raised by five parents, Koe offers anecdotes from their life with a polytribe. From the pregnant lady sandwich to the chaotic (mis)adventures of young love or the trials and triumphs of adulting, Koe guides readers through the life of a second generation polyamorous person with charming candor." —Elisabeth Sheff

"This autobiography of a young adult raised in a polyamorous pagan extended family is full of information for parents and kids of all backgrounds. Useful ideas abound and lead the reader to question the traditional wisdom of our society." —David S. Hall, 
Founding editor, Electronic Journal of Human Sexuality

"A individual voice with a unique and fascinating story to tell." —Barry Smiler, BMorePoly

"This fast-paced memoir grabs you like a piece of Heinlein's science fiction, while serving as a guide, a warning, an encouragement, and a wise teaching tool for families of every kind kind." —Alan MacRobert, publisher of Polyamory in the News

"The question I get a lot is 'But what about the children?' Having a firsthand account of someone who lived and loved and learned in a polyamorous household is invaluable to any of us raise children in the same environment. Bravo!" —Kevin Patterson, Curator of Poly Role Models and author of Love's Not Color Blind and the 'For Hire' series

"In this remarkably vulnerable piece of writing, Koe shares landmarks of their life as a means of answering the most frequently asked questions about poly youth. Highly recommended for anyone considering poly parenthood." —Cunning Minx, http://polyweekly.com/

"Koe boldly shares their story and provides a helpful guide for navigating the complexities of polyamorous family structures. This is a must-read for everyone who chooses to live outside the box and create the best life for themselves!" —Eri Kardos, best-selling author of Relationship Agreements: A Simple and Effective Guide for Strengthening Communication, Reducing Conflict, and Increasing Intimacy to Design Your Ideal Relationship

"This Heart Holds Many held me transfixed. Koe’s writing is so intimate and honest that I felt like I was a part of their polycule." —Annie Sprinkle, author of Explorer’s Guide to Planet Orgasm

"This Heart Holds Many is a thoughtful, hopeful LGBTQ+ memoir that includes parenting guidance on creative ways to raise children collectively and compassionately." —Laura Leavitt, Foreword Reviews

"Until the mid-2000s, interest in and information about polyamory were relatively rare, but then came the internet, and interest soared. Now Creation offers this first-ever memoir of growing up in a polyamorous family to partially satisfy that interest." —Michael Cart, https://www.booklistonline.com/
