If you’ve heard the story of Elizabeth Smart, you must be wondering if she wrote about her experiences.
Today, Elizabeth is an American child safety activist and commentator for ABC News.
However, she gained national attention at the age of 14 when she was abducted from her home in Salt Lake City by Brian David Mitchell.
Mitchell and his wife, Wanda Barzee, held Elizabeth captive for nine months until she was rescued by police officers on a street in Sandy, Utah.
Since then, Elizabeth has gone on to work as an activist and advocate for missing persons. Her life and abduction have been the subject of numerous non-fiction books and films.
My Story by Elizabeth Smart
In this memoir, Elizabeth Smart reveals how she survived and the secret to forging a new life in the wake of a brutal crime. On June 5, 2002, fourteen-year-old Elizabeth Smart, the daughter of a close-knit Mormon family, was taken from her home in the middle of the night by religious fanatic Brian David Mitchell and his wife, Wanda Barzee.
Elizabeth was kept chained, dressed in disguise, repeatedly raped, and told she and her family would be killed if she tried to escape. After her rescue on March 12, 2003, she rejoined her family and worked to pick up the pieces of her life.
With My Story, Elizabeth tells of the constant fear she endured every hour, her courageous determination to maintain hope, and how she devised a plan to manipulate her captors and convinced them to return to Utah, where she was rescued minutes after arriving.
Smart explains how her faith helped her stay sane in the midst of a nightmare and how she found the strength to confront her captors at their trial and see that justice was served.
The harrowing true story of abduction and survival from the courageous young woman who lived it―now the subject of a Lifetime original movie, I Am Elizabeth Smart.
