Recommended by a very dear and wise family member, I recently read this book "Educated." I deeply appreciated the insightful and authentic perspective described by Tara Westover on how healing can look for individuals who had a difficult childhood. Though Ms Westover's particular story might feel unique to her own life, I believe the emotional undertones reflected throughout the book are widely experienced among many. I highly recommend this book as an eye-opener, compassion-cultivator, and learning experience in resiliency.
If you like the book and want to know a bit more about the strong and resilient Tara Westover, you may want to check out her interview with Oprah on her Super Soul Conversations podcast.
