The Underground Railroad Audiobook | Colson Whitehead | 49erchurch.orgTara Westover was 17 the first time she set foot in a classroom. Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, she prepared for the end of the world by stockpiling home-canned peaches. In the summer she stewed herbs for her mother, a midwife and healer, and in the winter she salvaged in her father's junkyard. Her father forbade hospitals, so Tara never saw a doctor or nurse. Gashes and concussions, even burns from explosions, were all treated at home with herbalism. Then, lacking any formal education, Tara began to educate herself. Her quest for knowledge transformed her.

I feel almost bad giving a book with a fantastic subject less than a fantastic review, but it simply didn't live up to the hype. Approach with caution - it's historical fiction. Would I recommend The Underground Railroad. Share this book. But Eli's life is about to get a whole lot more serious.
