This is an Autobiography written by an average person, living an extraordinary life. Jacquelyn tells this story in a very unique and compelling style of writing which leaves the reader unable to put the book down as they wonder, "Then what happens?" It is an amazing tale of survival as Jacquelyn moves heaven and earth in an unbelievable battle for her freedom. To actually become, "free" she almost loses her life and must sacrifice all she has. This is a story of a mother's unconditional love for her children. The children she is willing to die to protect, as she overcomes the chains that bind her. It is a tale of hope and leaves the reader with a deep appreciation for their own journey and a new found inspiration for living. The story is made all the more powerful by the legal evidence she has provided in the book to support her claims. This evidence has been fully admitted to in court and is now a matter of public record. The recorded evidence is chilling as it gives a rare insight into the mind of a monster, as it is written in his very own hand writing on his business letter head. Jacquelyn also offers a detailed insight into the systems that she and many others have had to navigate through. This book may help to change some of the laws surrounding these issues. Powerfully moving, deeply engaging and written with raw honesty, this book is well worth the read. This book will be marketed to the millions of people screaming for change, awareness and insight to bring safety and justice to our world.

For readers of The Boy Who Dared and Prisoner B-3087, a collection of unforgettable true stories of children hidden away during World War II. Jaap Sitters was only eight years old when his mother cut the yellow stars off his clothes and sent him, alone, on a fifteen-mile walk to hide with relatives. It was a terrifying night, one he would never forget. Before the end of the war, he would hide in secret rooms and behind walls. He would suffer from hunger, sickness, and the looming threat of Nazi raids. But he would live. This is just one of the true stories told in Hidden Like Anne Frank, a collection of eye-opening first-person accounts that share the experience of going into hiding to escape the Holocaust. Some were just toddlers when they were hidden; some were teenagers. Some hid with neighbors or family, while many were with complete strangers. But all know the pain of losing their homes, their families, even their own names. They describe the secret network that kept them safe. And they share the coincidences and close calls that made all the difference.
