View from a bookseller
“Tara Westover is barely 30; could she really write a necessary and timely memoir already? Absolutely. Raised largely ‘off the grid’ in rural Idaho—without school, doctor visits, a birth certificate, or even a family consensus on the date of her birth—Tara nevertheless decides she wants to go to college. This is a story in two parts: First, Tara’s childhood working in a dangerous scrapyard alongside her six siblings, her survivalist father, and her mother, a conflicted but talented midwife and healer, while fearing Y2K and the influence of the secular world; then, her departure from her mountain home to receive an education. Both halves of her story are equally fascinating. Educated is a testament to Tara’s brilliance and tenacity, a bittersweet rendering of how family relationships can be cruel or life-saving, and a truly great read from the first page to the last.”
