BOOK REVIEW: Stolen Life

A Stolen Life: A Memoir
Stolen Life ~ 5/5

Here's what says:

Book Description

Release Date: July 12, 2011

When Jaycee Dugard was eleven years old, she was abducted from a school bus stop within sight of her home in South Lake Tahoe, California. She was missing for more than eighteen years, held captive by Phillip Craig and Nancy Garrido, and gave birth to two daughters during her imprisonment. On August 26, 2009, Garrido showed up for a meeting with his parole officer; he brought Jaycee, her daughters, and his wife Nancy with him. Their unusual behavior raised suspicions and an investigation revealed the tent behind the Garridos’ home where Jaycee had been living for nearly two decades.

A Stolen Life was written by Jaycee herself and covers the period from the time of her abduction in 1991 up until the present. In her stark, compelling narrative, she opens up about what she experienced—and offers an extraordinary account of courage and resilience.

My thoughts:
I was saddened by the ordeal Jaycee had to go through. Her captors holding her so long she began to feel safe only with them, depend upon them & want them. How sick of a person does that to a child? I pray that Jaycee can one day live a wonderful, full life & be as carefree as she was the day he stole her life! I hope he's rotting in prison & never sees sunlight again! How horrid!! I pray she & her little girls can live a good life & people give them their privacy.
