Cal Thompson is going a little mad over the Christmas holiday, stuck in a tiny house with fourteen members of his immediate family. There's no privacy and no boyfriend to help him cope—because Philip is still a secret, though not for long. Cal's family knows he's bisexual, but they've always assumed Cal would marry a woman and be fruitful and multiply. Just as he's ready to set the record straight, his parents tell the family they're selling the family house and tip this introvert's world on edge.
Philip Sherman arrives at Cal's family home to find his lover mourning the loss of his home, paralyzed by the abrupt and unexpected announcement that trumped his own. Though Philip takes the setback in stride, they won't be able to avoid the calling of their hearts for long: Cal needs to reveal the truth of his relationship with Philip to his family, and Philip has a question he's desperate to have answered.

3.5 starsOn the one hand I really liked the warm fuzzies of Cal’s big family, but on the other hand I found it VERY unrealistic that Cal had been hiding the love of his life for the past 3 years because he was afraid of his parent’s reaction.The parents were sweet and loving, so I really didn’t get ...
That was a delightful holiday story. It's so true that during holiday there were two courses bound to happen to houses; either they got empty or burst at every corners with multiplying residents. Being an introvert, crowd-avoider and middle-child myself, I sympathized with Calvin for his struggle to...
Feathers From the Sky was one of the most heartwarming, incredibly sweet holiday stories I have read so far and that's saying a lot because I have found some incredibly good Christmas reads this year and I know I still have some to read, but this book was a huge hit with me.
