This moving memoir traces the odyssey of this close-knit family from Sean's childhood, to his adolescent conversion to Catholicism, to his stunning revelation as a young adult of his homosexuality, Hopkins candidly chronicles his own transformation from a stoic CIA careerist to a grieving father coming to terms with the secret world of homosexuals and the ravages of AIDS.

From Library Journal:

Hopkins serves as the president of the Hopkins Institute and is the son of Harry Hopkins, the close adviser to Franklin D. Roosevelt. In this memoir, Hopkins shares the joy and pain of raising his only son and then watching him die of AIDS at the age of 26. The book chronicles the family history, including the marriage between Robert and Brenda during World War II and the privileges bestowed on them from belonging to the political elite. Sean was born just before their 20th wedding anniversary and developed a mature personality at an early age. When confronted by his parents, Sean explained his homosexuality to them. During his illness, he remained committed to his endeavors and continued training new acolytes for altar servers in the Roman Catholic Church, balancing his sense of self with the church's teachings. Hopkins's tribute to Sean serves as a reminder of the need for compassion and support for those suffering with AIDS. An appendix gives advice and a list of support organizations. Recommended for inspirational collections.
