Kate is apprehensive about meeting her son Joey for the first time in thirteen years-the first time since she gave birth to him and relinquished custody to the father, Michael Shaw. She's invited to Michael's home where he lives with his husband, Stuart Shaw, a restaurant manager. Kate feels a bit uncomfortable, and this turns to shock when she discovers naked pictures of Joey on Stuart's phone. Thinking her son is in danger from a pedophile stepfather, she and her husband, Larry, sue for custody of Joey. For Stuart, the possible loss of his stepson culminates a lifetime of victimization by homophobes, whether it be his mother, classmate, employer, the average man in a bar letting loose after a hard day's work, or the judge who decides his family's fate. Michael and Stuart must discover who took the pictures in order to prove Stuart didn't do anything to endanger his stepson and to regain custody of Joey. Stuart refuses to be a victim and demands to be heard, but that could change his destiny. A novel of legal intrigue, Adam and Steve explores the timely subjects of child custody, prejudice against homosexuality, and gay marriage laws as Michael and Stuart face a difficult struggle to maintain their family.
