Item Description...
At 3:58 in the morning of June 5, 2002, Ed and Lois Smart awoke to the sound of their nine year old daughter Mary Katherine's frightened voice. "Sheis gone. Elizabeth is gone." At first they thought she was having a bad dream about her older sister, but Mary Katherine's "bad dream" would quickly become their worst nightmare. Their daughter Elizabeth was gone. They were not sure why the media picked up on Elizabeth's story, but after their daughter was kidnapped she became the whole world's daughter. . After nine months of a strange, hard, sometimes rewarding, but mostly painful journey, Elizabeth was miraculously returned to them. Just as millions throughout the world had grieved for her loss, now they celebrated her safe return. In Bringing Elizabeth Home, Ed and Lois share the pain of every parent's worst fear: "What would I do if my child was taken from me?" They also share a story of great hope, strong faith, and trust in God. The Smart family had always been devoted to their Mormon faith, but through their terribly painful experience they gained a tremendous inner strength, which became the key to their survival. They write, "Having our daughter back home, in our arms, is nothing short of a miracle. It is the ultimate proof that God answers prayers. Granted, sometimes the answer is not the one we pray for, but still it remains an answer. We feel truly blessed that He answered our prayers the way we had hoped for, although we realize, regretfully, that this is not always the outcome in kidnapping cases. We have met so many families with missing children and we have seen how deep their pain goes. But what we hope to convey through our journey of faith and hope is that with a strong belief in God, all things are possible. Miracles do happen." In the end, the Smarts' story brings one point poignantly home; nothing is more important in this world than family. Not money. Not work. Not a fancy new car or an expensive, big house. Family, the prayers of so many friends and strangers, and trust in God are what got them through this experience; and having survived, they have no doubt that they can persevere in any situation as long as those three things are in their lives. Though their story is filled with many incredible twists and turns, they never lost focus on what was important: bringing Elizabeth home. Read by Sandra Burr and Mel Foster.

Good God...  Sep 1, 2008
That about says it all. If you want just the straight story, as I did (not looking for gory details, just a narrative), you've come to the wrong place. First of all, the writing was abysmal--and they *had* a ghostwriter! Imagine if they hadn't...

The excruciating details of the family's faith were belabored and preached and whined about until I wanted to scream, and I couldn't finish the book. I sympathize with their ordeal (though really, as another reviewer said, the family's naivete was almost criminal), but my sympathy started to wane as I trudged through this drivel. If I wanted to read about Mormonism, I would read some source material. Not recommended.
Bring her home.....  Aug 22, 2008
A great book about a family who got their daughter back from a kidnapping ALIVE! There is aLOT of their personal belief in Mormonism but well worth the read. Their whole attitude towards law enforcement is remarkable and patient! The book is a great testimony for those who have been in this type of situation.
Be Kind to Elizabeth's Parents However Strange This Case May Be  May 26, 2008
I enjoyed the book, obviously loving parents of a teenager who maybe willingly fled from home, we will never know. What is important is that she is back, part of a loving family, and she is going on with her life. The book is obviously the parents' side of the story and it is well told, kindly written, and we have to believe that maybe Elizabeth was actually kidnapped, even though the loopholes for this are pretty deep, especially that the culprits have yet to be tried for kidnapping so it looks like they are having a difficult time to prove the case. Still Elizabeth is a young woman, lovingly portrayed in the book by her family, so let's be happy about the conclusion of the case and leave it at that.
Amazing!  Jun 12, 2006
The first time I read this book, I was watching it all happen. i'ts like I was invisible. I admire Elizabeth for having the guts to do what she did. I would have fought back, but she did it the safe way, she didn't resist. Reading this book, you feel like you know the Smart family. I pray for all Missing Children everywhere. Elizabeth is the luckiest girl in the world! Mary Katharine was so cool and collected. she is amazing too. read this book!
Bringing Elizabeth Home  Mar 6, 2005
Bringing Elizabeth Home was a heartwarming story about Elizabeth's tragic journey. I would of preferred it if Elizabeth told the story rather then Elizabeth's parents: Ed and Lois Smart. But I think that there were rumors going around about Elizabeth's story, and they just wanted to tell the world what really happened.
They are a really strong family for having to go through Elizabeth's kidnapping. Escpecially her sister (Mary-Katherine) for having to see her sister getting kidnapped, and not being able to do anything to save her sister. I enjoyed reading about the Smart's sad but also happy story.
