A father for six years, a mother for ten, and for a time in between, neither, or both, Boylan has seen parenthood from both sides of the gender divide. When her two children were young, Boyland came out as a transgender, and as Jenny transitioned from a man to a woman and from a father to a mother, her family faced unique challenges and questions. In this memoir, Boylan asks what it means to be a father, or a mother, and to what extent gender shades our experiences as parents. »It is my hope,« she writes, »that having a father who became a woman in turn helped my sons become better men.« Through her own story and interviews with others, Boyland examines relationships between fathers, mothers and children - people's memories of the children they were and the parents they became, and the many different ways a family can be.
