________________________

Tara Westover and her family grew up preparing for the End of Days but, according to the government, she didn’t exist. She hadn’t been registered for a birth certificate. She had no school records because she’d never set foot in a classroom, and no medical records because her father didn’t believe in hospitals.

As she grew older, her father became more radical and her brother more violent. At sixteen, Tara knew she had to leave home. In doing so she discovered both the transformative power of education, and the price she had to pay for it.

Eye opener

This is fantastic weekend read. Confronting and will make you think and feel all emotions. It will have you asking why, then allow you insight, just enough so you can appreciate and understand the struggle. Enjoyable.
