Untamed (2020) is a story of unexpected love. In it, Glennon Doyle reveals how falling in love with Abby Wambach completely derailed all her plans for her life – but allowed her to become fully herself. Doyle had spent her life repressing her true spirit, trying to please other people, and be the perfect wife and mother. But, eventually, she learned to tune into her deepest desires and start building a life around who she truly is.
Have you ever felt encaged by your own life? Like you've built a life designed to please other people and neglected your own desires? Glennon Doyle was very familiar with that feeling.

That intuition helped her build a new life full of love, family, inspiring work, and activism – a life that, for the first time, truly fit with who she was.
