Praise

ONE OF NPR’S BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR

“A fascinating blend of family memoir and moral reckoning . . . Archibald’s honest account of one family’s uneasy journey through the civil rights and gay rights revolutions makes it clear that there are no easy decisions—or answers—when grappling with issues of faith and social justice.”—The Washington Post

“Evocative . . . a complex, fraught exploration of ‘the complicit and conspiratorial south’ . . . a sincere, poignant synthesis of memoir and social history of a troubled time.”—Kirkus
 
“Poignant . . . A powerful reflection on the influences of family and community and the ability to act justly in tumultuous times. Biography readers, especially those interested in reconciling the past, will be captivated by Archibald’s honest, conversational style.”—Library Journal
