Educated, Tara Westover. (Harper Collins, 2018).
This is the remarkable autobiography of a young woman raised in Nevada by an unorthodox Mormon father whose strongly held and unshakeable paranoid beliefs caused terrible damage to his children. It is also the story of her escape, first to Brigham Young University and then to Cambridge, an escape that for her was imperative but whose high price was the lasting destruction of most of her family relationships. The story is told in vivid and at times horrifying detail, but also without hatred and blame. It is an account of how one man’s destructive beliefs brought about so much harm, and how education and a new understanding has brought some healing.
