'A memoir to stand alongside the classics by the likes of Jeanette Winterson and Lorna Sage ... compelling and ultimately joyous' Sunday Times

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.

· Shortlisted for the 2018 BAMB Readers' Awards
· Recommended as a summer read by Barack Obama, Antony Beevor, India Knight, Blake Morrison and Nina Stibbe


  • Educated

    By Geo binder
    A wonderfully written account. A complete page turner. Brave, powerful and intense. It left me wanting more.
  • An education

    By Ceedee 2
    This book is very well written, compelling and enlightening. The story is an education in itself, compassionately illuminating the power of fear and prejudice, and the price exacted in justifying and defending the status quo.

  • What a book!

    By NaijaRed
    This is easily one of the most compelling books I have read. I read it in two days with my mouth open in awe and disbelief. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
  • Could not put this book down

    By Cgfry5755435466hfggtu
    A tale of achievement in the face of adversity. Very inspirational and yet very sad in parts. I had to skip some of the graphic descriptions of domestic violence, perhaps I will try to read them one day. Time simply flew past as I lost myself in this challenging but rewarding read.
