The story was compelling and depressing at the same time. Depressing because how the parents believes & actions warped the lives of the children. A lot of gas lighting too. These reasons reduced the rating. Was very well written, where you could take the troubled trip thru her life with her and feel her struggle to find who she really was and to keep it with the price of 'loosing' the majority of her family. A lot of mental issues in the family that I could see/feel but not identify. I doubt if Tara knows where she really received her will to press forward out of the trap. Was control and love all twisted together.
