About this book:

After a mental breakdown costs him his job in New York, a young man returns to Cape Town.  He and his husband want to rebuild their lives and start a family by adopting a child, but the application forces him to confront his own past. As his life becomes enmeshed with that of his house cleaner and her toddler, his marriage begins to unravel and violence threatens to upend their new beginning. Can he help them while finding a path to healing?
