Educated by Tara Westover

This book alarmed me from the get-go.  Her family did not believe in school or doctors.  Her father was a relgious fanatic.  Her mother excelled in herbal tinctures.  One older brother physically abused her.  If she wore a dress above her knee or showed a shoulder, she was a slut.  It is a riveting memoir about how Tara grows out of this background, which never quite lets go.
