THE MULTI-MILLION COPY BESTSELLER

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.

    A really good read. Speaks to the transformative power of education. A thoroughly satisfying ending as well.

    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.

    I listened to this book driving to northern NSW from Sydney Australia and loved the whole thing it was an eye opener I’ve always seen things in tv about the Mormons In America and heard from my dad about them in the UK the extreme behaviour and isolation they partake in each to their own but it’s opened my perception to the group at a whole. It was a gripping story and hard to hear but sometimes relatable so for me I give it 5 stars all the way.

    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
