a stolen life by jaycee dugard

A Stolen Life: A Memoir

This is a heartbreaking tale told by Jaycee Dugard, who was kidnapped at age 11 and was held hostage for 18 years.
She shares openly about the abuse that she suffered - sexual, physical and mental.  She tells about depending entirely on her kidnapper for everything and how he assisted her as she gave birth to their two daughters.  Philip, the man who kidnapped her and his wife, Nancy, were drug addicts and total nutcases.  He heard voices and blamed things that he did on what the angels told him. 
Jaycee and her daughters are survivors and they are learning to live in the real world and are trying to help others who are in difficult situations as well.

  1. This book was sad yet opens your eyes to a real life story. I couldn't put this book down once I started to read and would recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind a bit of gruesome details.
