This book was very well written. It had excellent details but not so many one gets lost or bored in reading them, the reader can honestly feel the emotional upheaval this woman went thru having her children taken from her. The turmoil of collecting money to finance the 'kidnapping' the two children in a foreign country to bring them back to the United States where they belong. The conclusion was very well expressed, the strain, the fear of being caught, the fear of having to return the children, the courage of the men who helped in the planning and carrying out of the rescue, and we should give medals to the two children for being so cooperative during the long,,dusty, dirty, scary trip to get back to safety of their mother's arms. I hope more people will read this book and enjoy it as much as I did!!'

Cassie’s ex-husband, Federico, kidnapped her two children and took them to Bolivia--his home country. He tried to poison the children against their mother. For a long time, she had no contact with them at all. She knew where they were, but complicated international laws prevented her from bringing them home.

Cassie explored different options for months. She ended up gathering thousands of dollars to hire a private investigator, and flew to Bolivia to kidnap the children back.

Cassie does a masterful recounting of the Latin American country she lived in: the living conditions, markets, and culture.

Even though Cassie’s ex-husband had broken laws to kidnap her children, the authorities held her to the letter of the law when she tried to recover them. The US Government did little to assist her, not wanting to offend the Bolivians.

Where Are My Children? is a fascinating page-turner. Live through the excitement, fear, and suspense that this woman experienced with her children. You’ll find your heart pounding! Well worth the reading time!

"...if we succeed, it means you'll have to go underground.You'll have to leave town, change your name, and start all over again somewhere else....Can you do all that?"

Could I? As I read, each page revealing the unthinkable, revealing another obstacle and what this woman would have to do to retrieve her children, I asked myself over and over again: do I have this much courage? The writer implies with every word how deeply she herself had to dig for this kind of fortitude.

This read is like watching a literary version of Dragnet. I could hear that "ta-ta-dum" lick as I read each new dated entry; I could see everything in vivid detail; hear background noise; feel the tension rise and release, rise and release with each obstacle overcome.

If I could have stayed awake all night, I would have read this book in one sitting and that is rare for me, but the plot's intensity drew me all the way in with the fact that the story is true making it even more interesting.

This author is adept at enculturating the reader to Bolivian customs, food, attitude and landscape. Her fluid descriptions woven masterfully throughout the action place the reader directly inside the scene, helping the reader become participant more than observer:

"...Bolivia was a land of contrasts. La Paz was on the flat high plains between the eastern and western ranges of the Andes mountains....two miles above sea level and chilly year round. But you could hop in your car and in two hours be in the steamy Zongo Valley, where oranges grew wild and parrots squawked in the trees....I had never seen so many Mercedes Benz automobiles in one place, yet the vast majority of people had no car at all and got around on crowded, smelly buses.

This book is written with such searing honesty and grit. Cassie's story of determined action in the face of overwhelming adversity will haunt you for a long, long time. "Where Are My Children?" is not just another tale of a bad spouse and faulty courts in a foreign country; this is the saga of one mother's extraordinary love and bravery, and the lonely, perilous odyssey she undertook. This book will truly change you.

I was very impressed with this book and found it hard to put down from beginning to end. The author details an obviously traumatic period in her life with clarity and intelligence. I only regret the kindle version did not have pictures! Buy it, read it; you won't be disappointed.
