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 [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

  • Umm What?

    By G1233
    I just finished this story. I sympathized with the characters. But as I finished the book I kept waiting for the relevance piece. Like why am I reading this and what’s the relevance to my world. I kept waiting for the story to come full circle. It never did/does. Hmmm...

    Moving story of overcoming an abusive childhood I really enjoyed this book
  • Inspiring and eye opening

    By bricheeselol
    While I have never endured ANYTHING like this, it’s still relatable on so many levels. A truly inspiring and heart breaking story. I wish it was 900 more pages. Being able to put myself in the authors shoes really brings out an empathy- an understanding, of different cultures/religions.

    This book tore at my heartstrings. There were times when I wondered if she would survive and I had to marvel at her strength to not only get through her life but to thrive and not end up hating everybody that tried to keep her from achieving her goal. I literally held my breath when she went off to college at BYU and had to live in a dorm. I’m so glad she made it through!

    Kind of amazing that someone with so much adversity could accomplish so much. Kind of rough at times.
