I don’t read a lot of non-fiction, but this book reads like fiction. It’s great and unbelievable that it’s true.
Great book and captivating and the narrator was amazing. Tara’s story gave a great insight to her (and probably many others) struggles with religion and family dynamics. I’m sure it was a painful journey to tell her story and I thank her for sharing it.
Gripping story that held me beginning to end even if I found the ride a little exhausting. I got emotionally wrapped up in Tara's story and more than once caught myself holding my breath. I even got angry at her for her repeated efforts to make it work with her family as I'd have given up long ago. Terrific book. Highly recommend. I do tend to not like it when narrators affect the tone of their opposite gender. It usually sounds comical to me and I'd rather just hear the reader's voice.
Great writing, narrating and a gripping story. It’s a fascinating rags to riches ethnography and I highly recommend.
Great book! Definitely recommend!
Most captivating and emotionally moving memoir I've read in a long while. Couldn't stop listening.
I wish I had known how traumatizing this book would be. I would not have read it. I found myself curled up in a fetal position after I was done. That does speak to the descriptiveness of the writer. In my opinion, the relentless abuse faced by the author was not balanced with a healing journey of recovery. So even though she emerged from the pit of hell, I felt like I was still covered in her shame and stigma.
Very interesting how mind control works.
Its as good as they say... I spent the the whole book shouting out loud "when are you going to wake up and smell the coffee?".
Beautifully written, fascinating story! I’ve loved listening to this narrator before, and she did an excellent job with this book as well!
