The #1 New York Times Bestseller Michelle was a young single mother when she was kidnapped by a local school bus driver named Ariel Castro. For more than a decade afterward, she endured unimaginable torture at the hand of her abductor. In 2003 Amanda Berry joined her in captivity, followed by Gina DeJesus in 2004. Their escape on May 6, 2013, made headlines around the world. Barely out of her own tumultuous childhood, Michelle was estranged from her family and fighting for custody of her young son when she disappeared. Local police believed she had run away, so they removed her from the missing persons lists fifteen months after she vanished. Castro tormented her with these facts, reminding her that no one was looking for her, that the outside world had forgotten her. But Michelle would not be broken. In Finding Me, Michelle will reveal the heartbreaking details of her story, including the thoughts and prayers that helped her find courage to endure her unimaginable circumstances and now build a life worth living. By sharing both her past and her efforts to create a future, Michelle becomes a voice for the voiceless and a powerful symbol of hope for the thousands of children and young adults who go missing every year.

In April of 1944, during the last year of World War II and two months before the D-day landings at Normandy, Paul N. Frenkel was a fourteen-year-old living happily with his family in the rural Transylvanian town of Hadad, Hungary. Suddenly, without explanation or justification, the family was rounded up with other Hungarian Jews, confined in a factory yard, and then herded into cattle cars and shipped off to Auschwitz. In Life Reclaimed, Frenkel narrates the story of his life—his prewar idyllic childhood in the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains, his survival in four Nazi camps as a young teenager, the loss of his parents and most of his relatives in Nazi hell, his daring escape from the death march out of Berga-Elster Camp, and his ultimate success as an entrepreneurial business executive and devoted family man in America. A story of endurance, courage, and hope, Life Reclaimed represents Frenkel’s determined ongoing efforts to come to grips with his Word War II experience—why his family and the other Hungarian Jews failed to realize their dire peril from the Nazis; why their Transylvanian neighbors and friends actively collaborated with the Nazis or passively abandoned their Jewish colleagues to arrest, enslavement, and death; and why this dark past continues to haunt his life and burden his thoughts.

Finding Me is a compelling true story about a young girl living through sexual and physical abuse—how it affected her life and relationships into adulthood and how she eventually found her way out of the darkness and into the light. Finding Me, although confrontational and dark at times, is about finding your way out of the darkness and no longer being afraid to step into the light. It is about love and forgiveness, not only for others, but for yourself—learning to love, nurture, and respect yourself to become the person you truly deserve to be. In sharing her story, M. Hope wishes to empower others that have walked the same or similar paths and to show that no matter how dark and heavy things can become, there truly is a light for us at the end of it all—if and when we are ready to turn our backs on the darkness and speak our truth.
