Author : Tara Westover,
A captivating memoir of the author’s incredible journey. It just seems unachievable what the author has been able to achieve when so much was stacked against her. One of the points that I really liked about the book is that the author is able to convey her sense of loss for a group of people (her family) who otherwise might appear to be so wrong about so many things. While the author’s journey is very unique, one can still relate to (or understand) the relationships with one’s family, a woman’s struggle in a patriarchal society, and longing for home. Great start to this year’s reading journey. Goodreads link to the book.
