On October 22, 1989, in the small town of St. Joseph, Minnesota, eleven-year-old Jacob Wetterling was kidnapped at gunpoint. Twenty-seven years later, on September 2, 2016, authorities were led to the boy’s remains. What lies between is the riveting story of the search for Jacob Wetterling, told by Patty and written by Joy Baker, a local blogger, who impressed the Wetterlings with the detail and accuracy of her blog posts regarding Jacob’s case. Joy was the perfect person to record Patty’s story.
With down-to-earth candor, Patty details the investigation as it unfolds, discusses her family’s struggles, and shows how she maintained her energy and optimism.
Offering a behind-the-scenes account of one of America’s most notorious crimes, this powerful memoir tells readers what happened and shows how, in searching for Jacob, Patty Wetterling found her purpose.
