's review

really liked it
bookshelves: memoir, adult-biography

Good, but at times disturbing and hard to read. It is painful and surprising to see how hard it was for the author to break away from her family's extreme, irrational, and at times abusive, lifestyle even after she was highly educated, see what a hold they had over her. It makes me really sad to think of all the children who grow up in such an environment and never get away, like her older siblings.
