Triumph over evil: The Elizabeth Smart Story

Elizabeth Smart, at 25, has done quite a bit in life. She’s landed a prime gig as a commentator for ABC News. She’s served a Mormon mission in Paris, where she met her future husband, and has a foundation in her name through which she advocates for greater protections for children. That last one is very much personal for Smart, who at age 14 was taken at knifepoint from her Salt Lake City home by a self-proclaimed prophet and his wife, who held her captive for more than nine months.
