Product Description

Product Description

At just twenty-years-old, Rachel Jensby finds herself faced with a desperate reality: either continue to hand her nineteen-month-old daughter over to the man who is sexually abusing her as the court has ordered her to do, or go into hiding to help her child escape the certainty of further sexual assaults. Kidnapping My Daughter is the true account of a mother who spent more than two years on the run, first from local and state authorities only, and then eventually from the FBI as well. As more and more children are faced with court-licensed abuse every day, Rachel Jensby hopes to be a voice among many; joining other mothers who are effecting change by finally finding the courage to come forward with their stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Mother's Love 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
Rachel Jensby has written a most moving and honest memoir of her daughter's early life, blighted by abuse from her birth father. Faced with a court's decision to enforce unsupervised visits with the abuser, even though the abuse had been officially documented, Rachel decided to try and go into hiding with her daughter.
I read this memoir in a single sitting. Steering clear of prurient and voyeuristic detail Rachel's memoir nevertheless accurately describes the terrifying nightmare that began and simultaneously documents the courageous way she and her fiancé still managed to provide a semblance of a loving and secure environment for Rachel's daughter to thrive in.
A shocking indictment of the failure of the authorities to act in the best interests of the child.

Rachel's faith sustained her through the nightmare and she will be publishing a sequel in 2014.

I discovered this book as a freebie. It deserves a wide audience and is very well written. Rachel writes with a calm and confident voice although it is clear that revisiting the memories in order to write this book must have been emotionally painful. I would have no hesitation in recommending this book and will certainly be purchasing the sequel.

It's a book that should be read by all who have responsibility for making care decisions.

This book is good and heartbreaking. But there is quite a few times you wrote Steve instead of Ben which made it bit confusing.

a very well written book, a sad and courageous story. Undeliverable that authorities would knowingly put a child in the care of such a sick n dangerous man, her mother had not choice but to do what she did, I have nothing but admiration for her, her husband and all their family that helped them. I hope they are all living safe, happy and peaceful lives now. x
