Ask any preacher's kid, it's never easy to be a PK. For Leo Stanhope, though, it may be harder than for most. He was born Charlotte, and in the Reverend Pritchard's home--well, as in all of Victoria's England--there is precious little room for persons unwilling to know their place and stick to it. And things are about to get harder: There's a gentleman, you might call him, who knows Leo's secret, and this gentleman is not above a spot of blackmail. And that secret could get Leo locked up for life. There is a bright spot, though, in the form of two little kids. They're teaching Leo's heart to open again, after a wretched year. In warming to them, he realizes how much more he has to learn. He's taught himself to talk, to dress, to walk, to inhabit the world as a man. Now he has to learn to be a father.
