Survival. There were many times while reading Tara Westover’s memoir titled, Educated: A Memoir, that my jaw dropped. This young woman’s extraordinary life kept me turning pages wanting to find out what happened next. Westover was raised in rural Idaho, home schooled, and limited to a world defined and interpreted by her survivalist parents. The end of the memoir is Westover earning her doctorate from Cambridge. The journey will interest any reader who enjoys learning about people whose experiences are quite different from ours.
Rating: Five-star (I love it)
