If you have not read Jaycee Dugard’s Memior “A Stolen Life,” you should.
You may remember that her life was changed forever when she was kidnapped one morning on her way to the bus stop. The world watched in shock 18 years later when she walked into an FBI office with her two daughters and the kidnappers that had posed as her ‘parents’ while keeping her prisoner in a backyard full of tents and trash. She writes an unflinching account of her ordeal and how she managed to hold onto hope in the direst of circumstances. Hers is a tale of resilience and hope.
This memoir was published by Simon and Schuster (2011).
CW: sexual abuse and violence.
