Rating: 4 out of 5

A similar subject to Tara Westover’s Uneducated and these books are worth reading as companions to each other. While Uneducated is about the Church of the Latter Day Saints in the US, and this is about the Brethren (of whom I’d never heard) in the UK, some of the themes and concerns are complimentary. This book is part history, about the brethren, and part memoir and does a good job of intertwining the two but left me wanting to know a bit more about how it felt to be outside, how the coming to terms bit happened for the author herself rather than the impact on her Dad.
