"This is the beginning of a beautiful love story," Nancy wrote in her diary after meeting Don Heche, the man she was to marry. Five children and 25 years of marriage later, it seemed as if they were the perfect family. Then Don was diagnosed with AIDS--the shocking discovery of his homosexual secret was only the beginning of loss and heartache. Shortly after Don's death, their 18-year-old son, Nathan, died in a car crash and Nancy fell into years of personal darkness. Eventually, as she was drawn into a long journey of growth and healing, her youngest daughter, Anne, began a very public lesbian love affair. Despite Nancy's life circumstances, she held on to what she knew of God's promises from Scripture and is discovering how to look at people and the world with God's perspective through eyes full of love and blessing. Her inspiring story of faith and courage will offer hope to anyone who has ever been on the brink of despair, or wondered how to respond with love to someone in a same-sex relationship.
Nancy Heche brings a compassionate and practical approach to some sensitive and painful life issues. After her husband's death from AIDS, Nancy experienced the international media rush when her daughter began a highly publicized lesbian affair. Nancy is an instructor at Loyola University and Judson College in Illinois and has earned a master's and doctorate in pastoral counseling. She has a private practice in psychotherapy where she specializes in communication and relationship issues, and is a popular Bible study teacher.

Obie JoyfulBoston, MAAge: Over 65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Personal account is educational.October 2, 2013Obie JoyfulBoston, MAAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I enjoyed reading this wife and mother's story of her journey with her husband's and daughter's homosexuality. I am trying to reconcile my Biblical beliefs with knowing, loving, and admiring the homosexuals in my life. I appreciate the author's honesty about her own feelings and I appreciate her being mum about others' confidential matters.

The timeline was confusing. However, later chapters included some very helpful material. I am glad I read the book and was encouraged by it's content!
Kim Casey2 Stars Out Of 5May 7, 2010Kim CaseyI feel Dr Heche comes up very short in discussing how to make amends with a lesbian daughter. I myself am not lesbian, but I am a survivor of child sexual abuse, just like her Ann. The fact that she did not discuss addressing that very deep pain of Ann's tells me she seems to STILL have her head in the sand. How can she encourage parents to say, "I realize you must have had some serious pain to cause you to make this decision..." to their child and then not share her own experience? The whole book is about sharing her experiences, minus the most important one - mending her strained relationship with her daughter. Dr Heche did not share about how she apologized for not being there for Ann or protecting her from the pedophile father. I was left thinking that Ann was on her way to healing since she returned to heterosexuality - FAR from it. Do a Google search for Ann Heche and you'll see that she is still hurting very much. Yes, she had a change of heart about the homosexuals, but any decent mom would if it were their kid and they were such a bad mom. The truth shall set US free, ALL the Truth.
Monica Henriksen5 Stars Out Of 5August 29, 2008Monica HenriksenI'm about half way thru this book and it is AWESOME. It is truly inspiring and a great help. I'm really enjoying it. It's not just for homosexual issues. You can translate her healing to almost any issue. My mother grew up in Nancy's era and I'm finding explanations as to what made her the way she was. I love what she says about how she'll react to the homosexual community. She said she'll love and respect not compromise and agree. When I read that I thought to myself she gets it! That's what everyone wants and desires and that could be the key to their hearts and winning them to the Lord.We need to pray for Anne!Thank you,Monica
