Book Review – Educated : a memoir

By Tara Westover

A memoir so astoundingly unsettling that you hope that it can’t be real.
Ultimately though, it is an uplifting story about a woman’s discovery of education, its transformative power and her joyous journey of self-determination…but it is a wild, wild ride.
Tara, born into a family of Mormon survivalists who sacrificed the safely and wellbeing of their many children as they go about their doomsday preparations in blind faith, recounts her journey from a school-less childhood to earning a PhD in a testament that shows it is possible to move beyond the limitations of trauma and abuse.

Book Review – He said, she said

index (2)By Erin Kelly

Really good thriller with varying viewpoints & jumping backwards and forwards between 1999 and 2015 as the whole story slowly comes together. Creepy and atmospheric you will be left with an eerie feeling at the end.
