All Amanda Jetté Knox ever wanted was to enjoy a stable life. She never knew her biological father, and while her mother and stepfather were loving parents, the situation was sometimes chaotic. At school she was bullied mercilessly, and at the age of fourteen entered a counselling program for alcohol addiction, with positive results.

She met the love of her life while still a teenager; they married at 20, and the first of three children followed shortly. Amanda finally had the stability she craved or so it seemed. Their middle child struggled with depression and avoided school. Still, Amanda was unprepared when the child she knew as her son came out as transgender at the age of eleven.

Shocked, but knowing how important it was to support her daughter, Jetté Knox became an ardent advocate for trans rights. But there was more to come. For many years, Amanda had coped with her spouse's moodiness, and that chronic unhappiness was taking a toll on their marriage.

A little over a year after their child came out, her partner also came out as transgender. Knowing better than most what would lie ahead, Jetté Knox searched for positive examples of marriages surviving transition. When she found no role models, she determined that her family would become one. The shift was challenging, but slowly the family noticed that they were becoming happier, more united.

Told with remarkable candour and humour, and full of insight into the challenges faced by trans people, Love Lives Here is a beautiful story of transition, frustration, support, acceptance, and, of course, love.

Deliveries in the UK seem to be pretty much back to normal since the 20th May 2021. We only send things first class and 99% are arriving in 1 - 2 working days.

International orders are still taking longer, due to different country lockdowns, the increase in online shopping and the reduction of flights carrying cargo and deliveries around the world. You should expect international orders to take longer than normal, although many are arriving on time. Some international orders take 2 weeks, some take 2 months. That's just the way of the world at the moment.

We use Royal Mail for deliveries with a tracking barcode. Once an item is with Royal Mail, we're not able to track it until it's been delivered/signed for. 

We can not be held responsible if your order does not arrive for a certain date.
