Editorial Reviews

Review

Gough’s straight ahead style is seductive. She draws you in. You stay in. ― Brian Doyle, author of Angel Square and Up to Low

This book is an outstretched hand. A gift to anyone who has sought to understand the mysterious nature of OCD and its isolating, bewildering consequences. This is a tale of tenderness and devotion, a portrait of the importance of community, and a story of surprising, unexpected, light. ―
Alison Wearing, author of Confessions of a Fairy's Daughter and Honeymoon in Purdah

People use the term “OCD” casually, often with a snicker. But
Stolen Child demonstrates beautifully the devastation that the disease can bring, and the love that a family brings to fight it. It's a heartfelt story of a family transformed by OCD, told with compassion and honesty. ― Jim Davies, cognitive scientist and author of Riveted

What do you do when your child is stricken down with a disorder whose cure is not at all certain? If you are a rational skeptic like Laurie Gough you research everything ever written on the disorder and apply the methods of science and reason to solve the problem, without resorting to superstition or the supernatural.
Stolen Child is beautifully written and emotionally evocative, but it is not just about OCD. It is about the power of reason … and love … to overcome adversity, a book that belongs among the classics of parenting. ― Michael Shermer, author of Why People Believe Weird Things, The Believing Brain, and The Moral Arc

This moving story is highly recommended as a beacon of hope for those experiencing OCD and their loved ones. ―
Publishers Weekly

A journey scarier than a trip to any foreign land ―
Low Down to Hull & Back News

This is a book impossible to put down. It will move you to tears. ―
Ottawa Citizen

Gough’s straightforward and eloquent style quickly draws you into this memoir about her son’s battle with obsessive compulsive disorder. Even for those with no ties, this is a beautifully written, touchingly honest tale. ―
Ottawa Magazine
