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.

· 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 an amazing book. There were tears, laughter and relatability!

  • Lisa J.

    This was without a doubt one of the most gripping and addictive stories I’ve ever read. Narrated beautifully I felt entirely immersed from the first chapter and found myself searching for times to sneak another little chapter What a phenomenal account of courage, what an incredible story where conviction of self identity and the mere knowledge of what is right and what is wrong ultimately prevails in justice

  • Abigail D.

    I loved this book. I didn’t want to stop listening. I was gripped from beginning to end.

  • Alison B.

    An amazing book, can't stop talking about it!

  • Rachel O.

    Really enjoyed this book. When I say that that I was confronted and disgusted at the ignorance that still exists in some parts of America and these are people that can vote in an election that affects the whole world. Scary! A real page turner and what a strong, inspiring woman.

  • Lerato D.

    This was a most life changing book!! It was better than i had imagined. If gripped me from the first 10 pages

  • Peta K.

    A powerful account that relates the author's experience evenly and without the ranting recrimination that one might expect, under the circumstances.
