If you are looking for a book full about the man who took Elizabeth Smart, you will not find it here. This is an amazing story told with an honesty that took me as a reader by surprise. It is not a sanitized or sugar coated version of events. Although Smart doesn't  pull any punches it is not gratuitous either. As a resident of Salt Lake City I distinctly remember these events, especially since I had a sister Smart's age I took them quite personally. I even went out and searched for her. I remember feeling that wonderful amazement when she was found. Since then I have always had a concern for her, and I think that this book more than anything else shows how wonderfully she's come through this ordeal. That is the overarching message of this book. It's the wonder of Elizabeth Smart's perseverance. Quite honestly it's a miracle that she would even be functioning with what she's put through, but you get a sense of her deep strength, the source of that strength and that's what makes this book so tremendous.

While I agree she is a brave woman, a writer she is not.  The narrative lacks depth, and leaves the reader yearning for something with more substance.  It could have been a fascinating memoir, but it falls flat.

    Her story and her courage is truly remarkable, however the book is not. The books is extremely repetitive and lacks structure. The story line is all over the place and it can be hard to follow. I am not by any means discrediting or down playing the tragedy that her and her family has been through, I am just suggesting you save your self the time and money. The tv specials that she has spoken on has offered more detail than the book
