Daniel’s Husband

Daniel and Mitchell are the perfect couple. Perfect house, perfect friends—even a mother who wants them married.They’d have the perfect wedding, too, except that Mitchell doesn’t believe in gay marriage. A turn of events puts their perfect life in jeopardy, and Mitchell is thrust into a future where even his love may not prove to be enough. “Daniel’s Husband” is a bold reflection of love, commitment, and family in our perilous new world.
