In 1942, with the nazis occupying holland, a thirteen-year-old jewish girl and her family fled their home in amsterdam and went into hiding.

Cut off from the outside world, they faced hunger, boredom, the constant cruelties of living in confined quarters, and the ever-present threat of discovery and death.

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.
A promised land is extraordinarily intimate and introspective – the story of one man’s bet with history, the faith of a community organizer tested on the world stage.
