Abduction and Justice
A Memoir of a Mother’s Fight for Justice
In 1991 Sharon Young’s abusive ex-husband abducted her son and two daughters from Honolulu to Mexico, setting off a decades-long battle to find her children and bring their father to justice. Abduction and Justice is the riveting story of how Young dealt with every parent’s worst nightmare—struggling through years of despair, facing unexpected legal hurdles and lobbying for establishment of the Missing Child Care Center Hawaii, which has since helped rescue hundreds of children in the Islands.
“A gripping, first-hand account of spousal and child abuse, brainwashing of minors, and systemic weaknesses in the criminal justice system.”
—Doug Chin, Attorney General of Hawai‘i, 2015-18
“Abduction and Justice is a page turner of a memoir, a cautionary tale that should be required reading for any parent.”
—Ann Rayson, author, Modern History of Hawai‘i
