Editorial reviews

Divorce can be sad and confusing enough but when a parent puts their own feelings before the welfare of their child, even manipulating and lying to the child in order to hurt the other parent, things can take a turn for the tragic. This is the story of Dash, a boy who sadly suffered just such a situation. His mother, Pamela Richardson, recounts her son’s struggles and her own, in an attempt to expose what has been termed "Parental Alienation Syndrome" and to aid parents and family law professionals who may encounter it. Julie Eickoff gives a steady and heartfelt performance of the audiobook, elucidating the subject matter while being respectful of its unfortunately real and personal source.

Publisher's summary

How do we begin to describe our love for our children? Pamela Richardson shows us with her passionate memoir of life with and without her estranged son, Dash.

From age five Dash suffered Parental Alienation Syndrome at the hands of his father. Indoctrinated to believe his mother had abandoned him, after years of monitored phone calls and impeded access eight-year-old Dash decided he didn't want to be "forced" to visit her at all; later he told her he would never see her again if she took the case to court. But he didn't count on his indefatigable mother's fierce love. For eight more years Pamela battled Dash's father, the legal system, their psychologist, the school system, and Dash himself to try and protect her son - first from his father, then from himself.

A Kidnapped Mind is a heartrending and mesmerizing story of a Canadian mother's exile from and reunion with her child, through grief and beyond, to peace.
