A Stolen Life, By Jaycee Dugard

I read this book Yesterday.  I just wanted to say it was not as hard to read as I thought it would be.  I am glad I saw the special with Diane Sawyer first.  Even when that came on, I was tentative whether I could bear to stay in the room to watch.  But during that interview Jaycee put me at ease and told her story.  Diane Sawyer was awesome and allowed her to tell it without jumping all over her with the next question.

I knew I wanted to read the book.  I am glad I read the book.  I am usually too sensitive to read this and I would never read a fictional Story about something of this nature.  But for me the story was one that needed telling, and I am thankful for Jaycee Dugard's bravery to tell it. 

I am not going to review the book or give details.  I just want to say that this is a horror story with a happy ending so far and I wish her the best life possible. Not near enough praise can be uttered, or written for  Officers Allison (Ally) Jacobs and Lisa Campbell, true heroes and good citizens doing their jobs by caring for other humans on the earth enough to speak up and make a world of difference.

I am inspired by bravery and courage as I reflect on this book.
