    [synopsis] => The Door of the Heart By Diana Finfrock Farrar Tammy is the wife of Ed Sloan, a prominent figure in the Texas political scene who is struggling over the fallout of the bullying of gay student Jamie ODell, which also involved Sloans son. The issue sends shockwaves through the lives of Ed and his colleagues, friends, and family, especially Tammy, who begins to consider gay rights from a new angle. The author follows Tammys journey as the once-dutiful wife and mother opens her heart to Jamies mother and slowly stands up against anti-gay views, both at home and in public. This book brings gay issues home and depicts the mental and emotional work people must do to change their views and accept each other. The story is rooted in faith from a range of perspectives, showing how Christianity can both harden and open peoples hearts. Although a work of fiction, this novel is based upon true stories and current events, and endnotes throughout the text and a list of LGBT resources shine a light on the book for the educational tool that it can be. But Farrars openhearted willingness to be gentle to her characters is sure to make the book appealing to a broad audience, especially to people of faith struggling to understand the intersection between LGBT issues and their beliefs. This novel explores faith, gay issues, and standing up for what is right. It is an emotional and open-minded read for everyone.
