A Book of the Decade, 2010-2020 (Independent)

Tara Westover and her family grew up preparing for the End of Days but, according to the government, she didn't exist. She hadn't been registered for a birth certificate. She had no school records because she'd never set foot in a classroom, and no medical records because her father didn't believe in hospitals.

As she grew older, her father became more radical and her brother more violent. At sixteen, Tara knew she had to leave home. In doing so she discovered both the transformative power of education, and the price she had to pay for it.

'An amazing story, and truly inspiring. The kind of book everyone will enjoy. IT'S EVEN BETTER THAN YOU'VE HEARD.' - Bill Gates

· From one of TIME magazine's 100 most influential people of 2019
· Shortlisted for the 2018 BAMB Readers' Awards
· Recommended as a summer read by Barack Obama, Antony Beevor, India Knight, Blake Morrison and Nina Stibbe

    Harrowing details but an utterly absorbing story. As a listener I was hopeful throughout. I kept looking for excuses to drive or walk alone so that I could listen. I can't recommend this highly enough. Loved it.

    It is not an easy listen but definitely a thought provoking and enlightening one. An eye-opening, must read that keeps you engrossed from the beginning to the very end.

    What a captivating story about learning what it means to be the person you choose to be, not what someone else would choose for you.

    A disturbing at times account. I found it compelling listening. The power of education prevails.

  • Paula L.

    Ugh, I had to read this as it was chosen by my book club. It felt like it was a list of all the horrid things that’d happened to the author and then written a book around it. Harrowing treatment by controlling and ignorant parents bit awfully written
