Broken Horses, by Brandi Carlile

Staff Pick
Brandi Carlile opens her heartfelt memoir by recounting the origin of its title:to her daughter's question, "Mama, remember when you were poor, how could you afford horses?" Carlile answered, "I couldn't, I was given broken ones." This idea--that behind our gilded perceptions lie the broken bones of the past--runs throughout this episodic account. Each chapter walks the reader through a specific era of songwriting, coupled with lyrics and photographs that reveal Carlile's deep commitment to family, faith, social activism, and the music that ties them all together. It's a fast, "love-at-first-read" type of book. (Pro tip: listen to Carlile's songs between each chapter for a truly immersive experience!)
