It called ... Born Yesterday by Rachel Williams Smith. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.

Born Yesterday: The True Story of a Girl Born in the 20th Century but Raised in the 19th
by Rachel Williams-Smith, Howard Bullard (Illustrator), Jean-Ires Michel (Photographer)

The book is a memoir of growing up in physical and social isolation stemming from a one-family, cult-like version of extreme religion, yet shaking free from family dysfunction and spiritual abuse to develop a wholesome life grounded in faith.

Though born in 1965, Rachel’s story could easily have been set in the 1800s. Wearing long dresses and broad-brimmed bonnets and living without modern conveniences including electricity, telephone, radio, television, or indoor plumbing, she and her two older brothers were shaped by the extreme religious views of her iron-willed, Vietnam-veteran father and malleable, practical-minded mother. The family separated from society and lived under often harsh conditions in an old, abandoned house atop a remote range of hills in Tennessee, awaiting the end of the world. Then at 16, Rachel was forced to face the world in which she was not raised to live. She struggled to adjust to an unsheltered life without casting aside the good along with the bad. Eventually, she found her way to a full, balanced, and vibrant life. Rachel shares an amazing story that ultimately testifies to God’s faithful and restorative loving care.
