    Story
    (43)

    Terry Tempest Williams's mother told her: "I am leaving you all my journals, but you must promise me you won't look at them until after I'm gone." Fans of Williams's iconic and unconventional memoir, Refuge, well remember that mother. She was a member of a large Mormon clan in northern Utah who developed cancer as a result of the nuclear testing in nearby Nevada. It was a shock to Williams that her mother had kept journals. But not as much of a shock as what she found when the time came to read them.

    Would you consider the audio edition of When Women Were Birds: Fifty-four Variations on Voice to be better than the print version?

    Yes. Terry's voice and emotion moves you to tears at times. It feels as if she is speaking to you


    What about Terry Tempest Williams’s performance did you like?

    Her presence in itself. Her voice, her honestly, her pace,... Everything about the way she reads captures your heart and keeps you hostage until the end. Two days later I'm still under her spell in the best way possible.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend it.
