It was a mother’s worst nightmare: her husband had stolen their children and she might never see them again. They’d been kidnapped by their father in November 1987 from their McAllen, Texas, home and taken thousands of miles away to his native Bolivia. She tried to get help anywhere she could—the local police, the FBI, the U.S. State Department, even the Bolivian government itself. No one seemed to care. Only one option was left—to take matters into her own hands.
They told her it was impossible. She would be risking her life in a dangerous foreign country. But she wasn’t going to give up. With hired “recovery experts,” she took part in a daring rescue mission to bring her son and daughter back home.
This is the dramatic true story of one mother’s triumph against impossible odds to protect the people she loved more than anyone else in the world—her children. This is her story, in her words.
Where Are My Children? was first published by Zebra Books in 1991. The book had 275 pages and 12 pages of photographs. This e-book edition has several additional never-before-published photographs.
A note from the author, Cassie Kimbrough: So many people who’ve read my book tell me they couldn’t put it down. Even if it meant staying up until the wee hours of the morning, they kept reading. I hope it will be that thrilling for you, my e-book readers. It’s still hard to believe it all happened just as I wrote it down. Many years have gone by, but it is still the grandest adventure of my life. I can’t say I enjoyed it at the time, but I hope you enjoy reading about it.
