Notes: Tara Westover grew up preparing for the End of Days, watching for the sun to darken, for the moon to drip as if with blood. She spent her summers bottling peaches and her winters rotating emergency supplies, hoping that when the World of Men failed, her family would continue on, unaffected.
I don't usually enjoy the genre of "memoirs of horrific childhoods" but this (although her childhood was truly horrific) is not like that. It's beautiful, awful and one of the best books I've read.
