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.

    Woah! This book should be made into a movie. Such an incredible story of how this amazing woman went from being home schooled by her survivalist family who didn’t believe in hospitals and thought the government was out to get them, to getting her PHD. Definitely recommend this one!!
