Jill Duggar Dillard memoir

Jill Duggar Dillard is following in sister Jinger Vuolo’s footsteps and releasing a tell-all memoir. Jinger’s Becoming Free Indeed: My Story of Disentangling Faith from Fear was a New York Times best seller when it was released in January 2023.

Dillard’s book is expected to be a little more scathing, however, as she has been much more vocal speaking out against her parents way of doing things.

In a bold move, Jill has included a photo of her family on the cover of Counting the Cost . To us, that seems like she’s coming out swinging.

The reality star and her husband Derrick Dillard took us behind the scenes of her book, including video if their photoshoot for the cover and their live reaction to seeing the memoir in person for the first time.

Jill’s memoir is set to be released September 12th, 2023.
