This is an incredible memoir and very heartbreaking. It's hard to believe that families like this exist outside the system. I felt it was very similar to The Glass Castle, in the sense both authors overcame difficult childhoods and became very successful academically and professionally.

Sending to ghir in Honolulu, HI for the wishlist tag game. Originally offered her The Killers of the Flower Moon, but she obtained a copy, so I am sending this one instead.

Arrived safely in the mail. Thank you, Queen72, for sharing this one from my wishlist.

Superb read. A father who does not trust the government and keeps his kids from attending school or seeing a doctor. A community that believes women need to be kept in their place. Truly inspired dread, waiting for the next horrible event to befall this dangerously neglectful family, and rooting for the author to escape before someone dies.

Not sure how much of this is true and how much is false memory. One thing that stood out to me was how intelliegent Tara must be to have over come the lack of education. I did find it strange that the family had a computer and TV, yet they were trying to be independent of the government. Maybe it was to keep track of the government. Also, the computer was a help to the mother’s business. I still did enjoy reading the book.
