Transitions of the Heart
Pepper, Rachel. Transitions of the Heart: Stories of Love, Struggle, and Assistance by Mothers of Transgender and Gender Variant Children. Cleis Press, 2012.
This is a collection of essays and letters written by mothers of transgender or gender-nonconforming children. Some of their children transitioned as adults; others were able to verbalize their differences as very young children.
This is an excellent book. The short essays are very real and eye-opening. This is a book that should be in everyone's library as a very necessary resource and source of hope for those who are coming to terms with their own or their loved one's gender identity.
