My Story

Cover: 'My Story'

Staff Review: "My Story" by Elizabeth Smart, Chris Stewart


More than ten years after her abduction from her Salt Lake City home, Elizabeth Smart, now 26, tells the story of what she encountered during the horrific months she spent in captivity and how she survived.  Elizabeth's memoir does not dwell on the darkness she encountered, but rather focuses on how her faith and love for her family helped her survive and create a wonderful life for herself after her rescue. Elizabeth's story is very inspiring because she never gave up hope or lost her faith despite all the misery Brian David Mitchell and his wife Wanda Barzee put her through. This book is difficult to read at times, but it is also difficult to put down. I would recommend this title to anyone wanting to learn more about this courageous woman.

Audience: adults | Genre: nonfiction, memoir
