Description - Mummy, Take Me Home by David Leslie
Mummy, take me home, sobbed little Jasmine Dodds as she was ripped from her mother s arms. But there was nothing that Morag could do, as a court in Scotland had given custody of the child to her Texan father. When her parents relationship ended, the couple had fought bitterly about their daughter s future. Fearing that she would lose her child, Morag fled with Jasmine, only to be hauled back in shackles and incarcerated in a grim American prison. When she was eventually freed, and both mother and daughter were sent back to Scotland, Morag thought her nightmare was over. In reality, it was only beginning. Back in the UK, every move she made was watched and every mistake recorded. When a new legal challenge was mounted and Jasmine was returned to her father in the US, Morag sank into deep depression and became lost in a haze of alcohol and drugs. Police cells and hospital beds became her home and the once beautiful and desirable young woman found her life spiralling out of control. Mummy, Take Me Home is the gripping, disturbing true-life story of a tug of love that no mother should ever face and no child should be forced to endure.
