love wins by debbie cenziper & jim obergefell
★ ★ ★ ★
Now one of my favourite non-fiction reads, Love Wins follows the journey of Jim Obergefell and his lawyer, Al Gerhardstein, from their Ohio case to simply have Obergefell's marriage recognised on his late husband's death certificate, to ultimately winning the case for nation-wide same-sex marriage in the US Supreme Court. About the power of love and a single voice, Love Wins is so relevant and an important source of positivity and strength in today's political climate.
The book takes the reader through Obergefell's relationship and the beginnings of his case in Ohio, to transcripts from the Supreme Court hearings, making for a fascinating read.
Love Wins describes an historic moment that will be reflected on for decades, and is an essential read.
