Fate. Divine faith. The laws of attraction. Free will. Or a shared calling to achieve a greater good. Whether we believe in supernatural forces or random odds, we speculate over what brings together two people who consider themselves soulmates. HIGHER LOVE, the epic true story of a gay couple’s lifelong struggle to be recognized together as the parents of four multiracial children, draws readers back to this question—a question with no clear answer, but only the beauty of possibility. In its magical telling by Paul Campion and Randy Johnson, two of the plaintiffs in the SCOTUS case that would legalize same-sex marriage, the memoir shows us the higher purpose of the obstacles Paul and Randy tackle as gay dads to build a family and live their dream.
