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

  1. Unbelievable good!
    Olivia, 15 april 2020

    I rarely read memoirs, but of the ones I've read this is hands down the best one. It's even hard at times to really believe that the things she goes through is not fiction! The language is poetic and so inspirational. Highly recommend!!

  2. Den hör boken måste du läsa!
    Camilla Körner, 30 augusti 2019

    Tara Westover har ett fantastiskt språk och beskriver på ett genialt sätt hur en stark kvinna i underläge överlever och formar sin egen framtid. Som professionell behandlare så tycker jag även hennes skildring av hur traumat påverkar henne är mästerlig. Är du intresserad av att läsa om psykologi och hur man överlever svåra upplevelse så är den här boken verkligen att rekommendera!
