A Stolen Life: A Memoir by Jaycee Lee Dugard

A Stolen Life: A MemoirA Stolen Life: A Memoir by Jaycee Lee Dugard

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have to give Jaycee Lee Dugard 5 stars for the courage to write down and share the incomprehensible horrors she endured for 18 years. This isn't a book one can judge by way of writing style, story line or any of the usual ways we rate a book.

A Stolen Life: A Memoir is not for the faint of heart. Jaycee Dugard's life during her 18 years of captivity, her journal entries, and her reflections are honest and straightforward.

What one is left with after reading Jaycee's memoir is that of hope, strength and the power of love.

  1. I saw her interview. I forget who with, but I was touched by the remarkable resilience she seemed to have. I will be getting this book to read. She is a truly remarkable young woman.

  2. I've been wanting to read this book. It's amazing what a strong woman she was during her long struggle.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. I truly appreciate them.
