I had never read up on the Jaycee Dugard story, but only knew of it through some news snippets here and there.  I watched her Diane Sawyer interview from last night just this morning and was completely blown away by her story. For her to even come out and tell her story and to even write a book was amazing to me. I can't even begin to imagine what she went through. Also, as a mother, I can't imagine what her own mother went through. What's inspiring to me is that she's living her life today to the fullest and isn't letting what happened to her define who she is.

...will definitely be picking this up to read!


  1. I saw her interview with Diane Sawyer. It is just an unbelievable story. A nightmare come to life!

    Thanks for hopping by by blog! I'm already a GFC follower!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm now following you as well.
    I didn't know that she wrote a book. I didn't know much about her story either. I'll have to check out this book.

  3. Thanks for the follow. I'm now following you too.

    The Jaycee Dugard story is a heart wrenching tale. I'm looking forward to reading her book. Modern-day slavery, which is exactly what she experienced, happens much more than what people think. It's all around us and under our very noses.

    Thanks for posting about this.

  4. Amazing woman with amazing strength!
