“The Mother in Law” by Sally Hepworth
From the moment Lucy met Diana, she was kept at arm’s length. Diana is exquisitely polite, but Lucy knows, even after marrying Oliver, that they’ll never have the closeness she’d been hoping for.
But who could fault Diana? She was a pillar of the community, an advocate for social justice, the matriarch of a loving family. Lucy had wanted so much to please her new mother-in-law.
That was ten years ago. Now, Diana has been found dead, leaving a suicide note. But the autopsy reveals evidence of suffocation. And everyone in the family is hiding something… (Goodreads)

Second Friday Foreign Film
Shoplifters (Japan 2018)
A Japanese couple stuck with part-time jobs and hence inadequate incomes avail themselves of the fruits of shoplifting to make ends meet. They are not alone in this behaviour. The younger and the older of the household are in on the act. The unusual routine is about to change from care-free and matter-of-fact to something more dramatic, however, as the couple open their doors to a beleaguered young girl. The reasons for the family’s habit and their motivations come under the microscope. (from IMDb)

“Educated” by Tara Westover
I’ve long been fascinated by people who succeed against all odds. What enables them to overcome adversity, to conquer all the obstacles in their path? For Tara Westover the answer is education. Raised in a family that was isolated from mainstream society, Tara never goes to school, never sees a doctor. Her father’s increasing religious extremism mirrors a descent into madness, leaving his daughter vulnerable to violence and emotional abuse. And yet Tara escapes, and powered by a thirst for knowledge, she achieves the heights of academic success — Harvard and Oxford. The price she pays is severing ties with her home and the family she loves. Educated is a powerful memoir, painful, inspirational and impossible to put down. (NPR review)
