For the 1st book of Christmas, a good friend gave to me...


Tara Westover was born to survivalist parents in the mountains of Idaho and didn’t set foot in a classroom until she was 17 years old. At that time, she began to educate herself, learning enough on her own to get into Brigham Young University. Her learning continued at Cambridge and Harvard where she began to wonder if she’d traveled too far from her family beginnings to ever go home again.

Our take:

Winner of Best Memoir in the 2018 Goodreads Choice Awards, this unforgettable story gets to the heart of what education is and what it offers: the ability to change one’s life.
