I don't remember who recommended The Paternity Test to me, but whoever did I owe them a thank-you. What I thought was a cute light read about an upscale urban gay couple trying to have a baby a la The New Normal --- but, uh, hopefully funnier --- turned out to be much more substantial and involving.
A thirty-something gay couple, writer Pat and airline pilot Stuart, leave busy New York for quiet Cape Cod, running away from Stuart's serial infidelity and towards baby making.
Looking for a surrogate, and after interviewing a bunch of unsuitable candidates, they discover Debora, a charming Brazilian woman married to an American, Danny. Debora and Danny have a young daughter, and of course their own drama behind the scenes.
There is more to The Paternity Test than meets they eye (hey, there is a pun in there somewhere)... this is a poignant tale of a relationship going through challenging times, mixed in with good laughs and unexpected plot twists. Read it.
