Her family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education, and no one to intervene when one of Tara& #8217 s older brothers became violent. When another brother got himself into college, Tara decided to try a new kind of life. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge University.
