it was amazing

I was lucky enough to take a literature class on the uses of memory in nonfiction and fiction taught by Honor Moore in spring 2009, and finally got around to reading her memoir. This book is an unflinching study of how faith, family and sexuality intersect. Honor is the daughter of the late Paul Moore, who became bishop of New York and was later revealed to have had same-sex relationships throughout his life, though married with many children. The book follows both of Moores' life histories, and delves deeply into their relationships, both physical and spiritual, as well as the emotional fallout of such life-changing secrets being revealed. I was very moved by this book.
