An unforgettable memoir about a young girl who, kept out of school, leaves her survivalist family and goes on to earn a PhD from Cambridge University

Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Her family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education, and no one to intervene when one of Tara’s older brothers became violent. When another brother got himself into college, Tara decided to try a new kind of life. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge University. Only then would she wonder if she’d traveled too far, if there was still a way home.

“Beautiful and propulsive . . . Despite the singularity of [Tara Westover’s] childhood, the questions her book poses are universal: How much of ourselves should we give to those we love? And how much must we betray them to grow up?”—Vogue


“Westover has somehow managed not only to capture her unsurpassably exceptional upbringing, but to make her current situation seem not so exceptional at all, and resonant for many others.”—The New York Times Book Review


Book Review:

This book really moved me

I was so struck by the clearly illustrated example of how a simple education allowed her to escape the bird cage she and her siblings were trapped in. Starting her education with a blank canvas of a mind and seeing her experiences in dealing with her new discoveries and how her lack of prior knowledge affected her outcome was amazing to see. I look forward to her next book.

Gripping, Disturbing, Compelling

(May contain information that could be perceived as a spoiler....)
I devoured this memoir in two days and immediately recommended it to family. It is a deeply disturbing memoir of family ties, search for self, emotional and physical abuse and the amazing strength of the man spirit.

I so admired Tara throughout the book for being a tough, bright young woman, who although was eager to please her family, also had a mind of her own.

I literally cried multiple times through the book as she (and other family members) found herself (themselves) in near death accidents because of the negligence and arrogance of her father or the victim of abuse at the hands of her brother. It was maddening to read accounts of her going back home after feeling some satisfaction that she had “escaped”.

In the end I have nothing but respect for her. She endured so much suppression, abuse and manipulation it is amazing she has accomplished what she has and can speak so eloquently about her experiences. I wish I could embrace her and thank her for sharing her story, and I truly hope that she is doing well.

She will probably never read this, but if so, Tara, I believe every word you wrote and I think you made the right decisions in the end. You deserved so much more. You deserved to be protected from physical and emotional harm. You count as a person. I hope you are at peace and are happy with your life.
