Staff Reviews


This book is a beautiful celebration of different wedding customs around the world. Yes, it's about two women getting married, and addresses some of the challenges of finding a place to legally wed, but the vast majority of the book focuses on their travels and the unique wedding ceremonies they experience. It celebrates Julian and Rose's lifestyle without that overshadowing the plot of the rest of the book. Fatinha's artwork is, bold, vibrant, and enchanting. A perfect introduction to marriage customs in different parts of the world, and a wonderful way to normalize the LGBT experience of those customs.
