The summary “This is a story about living your truth, embracing who you are and living the life you were meant to live”, prompted me to want to read this book.
I was not disappointed. Once I started listening to it I could not put it down.
Anthony comes across as telling his story in a very open and honest manner. His courage and determination to live a life of authenticity and integrity are truly inspiring.
As a gay man and father I have felt some of the same struggles in my own life and reading about Anthony’s journey has given me inspiration to stay the course and continue to strive to live my life in the way it was intended.

I have been a Christian most of my life and have struggled with being Gay all my life. This book was so honest and heart breakingly real. I really identified with his struggle and I think everyone should listen to or read this memoir.

If ever a book about overcoming adversity should be read, then make it this one. Anthony Venn-Brown lays bare his soul in this deeply moving and powerful account of his journey towards seeking and ultimately living out his truth. He writes of his pain in living a closeted and disparate life as a gay man within the church, with a bravery and candour which is humbling, it held my attention from the 'get go' at once both heartrending and heartwarming, it's message is clear - 'after all the pain and exploration, we arrive where we started and know that place for the first time'.- Should be on any gay man's reading list regardless of whether they are out and proud, struggling alone in the closet or somewhere in between. This book is about hope, resolution and discovering faith in it's truest sense, which often means simply letting go of and deconstructing much of what we have been indoctrinated with.
Superb narration from David Tredinnick, whose rich toned voice, understated style and warmth of delivery makes this story all the more poignant and heartfelt. Brilliant!
