Where Are My Children? The True Story of a Mother Who Risked Her Life to Rescue Her Kidnapped Children

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.

Having worked in the emergency services for more than fifteen years, Dan Farnworth has seen it all. There was the time he was called to take away a dead body - only for the 'corpse' to jolt back into life and demand to know what he was doing in her house. Earlier in his career, he unwittingly disturbed a crime scene as he shared the sad news of the victim's death with her son. Along with the 18,000 other paramedics in the UK who serve us day and night, Dan constantly finds himself pushed into extraordinary circumstances where he not only has to deal with those he has been sent to help, but also their worried families and friends - and even with irate drivers who object to his ambulance getting...
