“A brave and valuable book.” —Ursula K. Le Guin, author of The Left Hand of Darkness

“Tender. . . . Flows slowly, a gentle stream of recollections . . . coalescing into eloquence.” —Chicago Tribune
“A compelling story, compulsively readable, and its authorial voice—calm, keen-eyed, gracious but only to a point—still rings inside me.” —Janet Fitch, author of White Oleander

“Moving. . . . A rich and revealing personal history. . . . Her story is one of family succor and sorrow; and the flickering origins of shame. This is an affecting and tender memoir as Ms. Freeman displays the dark wonder of the forces that shape our life choices.” —Ron Carlson, author of Return to Oakpine

“Searing. . . . Revelatory. . . . There is always great pleasure for the reader in her exacting, sensory descriptions.” —Los Angeles Review of Books

The Latter Days arrived at four P.M. and I read until midnight, unable to leave. . . . Freeman sends rays of light straight into the reader’s heart.” Susan Straight, author of Between Heaven and Here
“Poignant. . . . Freeman writes with the clear voice of a person who’s (mostly) shed the trappings of the past.” —Publishers Weekly

“A novelist’s account of her early life growing up Mormon in Utah and the family memories she kept hidden from herself. . . . highly readable. . . . A poignant, searching memoir of self discovery.” —Kirkus Reviews
