About this title

Synopsis:


Red Water
takes you into a territory and culture that will haunt you long after the last page is turned. The story is fascinating, the language and style is incredible, and the characters are as varied and memorable as a Utah sunset. Judith Freeman proves once again that she is as gifted a writer as we have in this country.
--James Welch, author of Fools Crow

From the Back Cover:

“An unforgettable portrait of the unceasing labor, passion and danger of frontier life, recalling the best of Willa Cather.” —Los Angeles Times

“Freeman presents ravishing visions of the land, which becomes as much a character in her drama as the people she so vividly conjures . . . Gorgeous and galvanizing.” —Newsday

“[C]ompelling, vivid writing that is both compassionate and unflinching; Freeman has gotten under the skin of these three very different women and their milieu in a profoundly affecting way.” —The Seattle Times

“[R]evelatory. . . . [C]reates a vivid, believable picture of the high religious fervor and red-dust-covered hardships of the Utah frontier.” —O, The Oprah Magazine

“Freeman renders the terrible beauty of this land and the flinty resolve of these people with great skill.” —The Washington Post

“Captures the mayhem of America’s westward expansion . . . An evocative tale of religious brutality and pioneer hardship set against an unforgiving landscape.” –Chicago Tribune

“Intense, charged with real feeling and electricity . . . Intelligent, complex prose will give readers a chance to reflect on the deeper meanings of love and faith and endurance.” –The Oregonian

“Engrossing. . . . Freeman eschews the tributaries of contemporary domestic life for the deeper and darker lake of the past. . . . Unforgettable.” –St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“The narrative soars . . . makes astute points about the almost indistinguishable similarities between faith and love.” –The New Yorker

“A powerful novel whose three narrators engage us so completely that we absorb their intricate history effortlessly.” –BookPage
