Tara Westover is the daughter of a bipolar, Morman who doesn't believe in the government or modern medicine and throws scrapyard metal from his business without determining if his children are in the way--all because God will provide. This is Tara's story of how she taught herself enough to qualify for college and then went on to study at Cambridge and Harvard. It's also the story of how she sought to emotionally extricate herself from this family with the help of her brother. It truly is an insight into foreign cultures, mental illness, and how they influence society and the individual. She is an excellent writer!
