In 2004, David Goldman’s wife abducted their son. After a five-year battle, he regained custody of his son, Sean. In A Father’s Love: One Man’s Unrelenting Battle to Bring His Abducted Son Home, Goldman recounts his fight to bring his son back to the U.S.
The book, out tomorrow, begins when Bruna, Goldman’s wife, leaves with Sean for a two-week trip to visit her parents’ home in Brazil. When she got there, she revealed that she had no plans to return to New Jersey with their son.
Because the Brazilian government saw this as a simple custody case, Bruna was allowed to keep Sean. Bruna obtained a divorce, remarried, then died during childbirth in 2008, but Sean still was not allowed to return home.
Goldman was reunited with his son on Christmas Eve 2009 but not before the highest levels of both the U.S. and Brazilian government became involved in the case. Goldman writes about rebuilding the relationship with his son and fighting to bring his son home.
