Brilliant, meditative, and full of surprises, wisdom, and wonder. Ann Lamott, author ofImperfect Birds
I am leaving you all my journals, but you must promise me you won't look at them until after I'm gone. This is what Terry Tempest Williams's mother, the matriarch of a large Mormon clan in northern Utah, told her a week before she died. It was a shock to Williams to discover that her mother had kept journals. But not as much of a shock as it was to discover that the three shelves of journals were all blank. In fifty-four short chapters, Williams recounts memories of her mother, ponders her own faith, and contemplates the notion of absence and presence art and in our world.When Women Were Birdsis a carefully crafted kaleidoscope that keeps turning around the question: What does it mean to have a voice?

Terry Tempest Williams's unconventional, beloved memoirRefuge: An Unnatural History of Family and Placepaid homage to Williams's mother, who developed cancer as a result of nuclear testing in nearby Nevada. Her mother told her, I am leaving you all my journals. But you must promise me that you will not look at them until after I am gone. Williams easily found the three shelves of beautiful cloth-bound diaries, but she soon discovered that all the books were blank. A stirring meditation on the messages conveyed in those seemingly empty pages,When Women Were Birdsexplores the shaping of a life through fifty-four precisely honed chapters, each with its own unique wisdom. Through evocative scenes, captured in lyrical words, Williams has created a work that startles and illuminates.
