by Judith Freeman - Memoir

At 22, Judith Freeman was working in the Mormon church-owned department store in the Utah town where she'd grown up. In the process of divorcing the man she'd married at the age of 17, she was living in her parents' house with her four-year-old son, who had already endured two heart surgeries. She had abandoned Mormonism, the faith into which she was born, and she was having an affair with her son's surgeon, a married man with three children of his own. It was at this fraught moment that she decided to become a writer. In THE LATTER DAYS, Freeman explores the circumstances and choices that informed her course, and those that allowed her to find a way forward.
