I can’t figure out how this works, either.

Thank you for sharing!! :smirk:

I am very much behind schedule but I hope to catch up. I was kind of on the fence about joining right now because I had just started another book, but then I read this interview of Tara Westover in The Atlantic and I was very intrigued by some of the things she had to say. In particular she used the phrase “breaking of charity” to describe a loss of empathy. Also the concept of “disfellowship” that dates to the Salem Witch Trials and refers to one community splitting into two. Westover struck me as being particularly insightful and I hope her novel is too.
