From puberty Carter Braiden found it easier to pretend that he was like all the other boys. He kept quiet in school, married as expected, experienced fatherhood, and became a truck driver. Over time the only person who knew and luckily understood Carter’s struggle was his ex-wife.
A tragic car accident turns Carter’s world upside down because he is now solely responsible for his three year old son, Toby. Carter is dealing with full time parenthood, a new job closer to home, and a brand new house for their little family. What he isn’t prepared to deal with is his attraction to Toby’s day care center owner, Peter Donaldson. For the first time in Carter’s life he can’t hide, he doesn’t want to hide who he is.
Sensitive and genuine, Rainbow Courage offers a relevant perspective on today’s family issues. Carter doesn’t like to deal with conflict but he is finally given the choice, the opportunity to be honest and free. Carter is a refreshingly conflicted character. Toby is a cute boy without being too precocious. As for Peter, he’s the real deal and worth all the love he can get. Rainbow Courage is a contemporary charmer.
