For a full year, Gracia Burnham and her missionary pilot husband, Martin, were held hostage in the southern Philippines by a vicious terrorist group called Abu Sayyaf (which has links to al-Qaeda). She got out alive; her husband did not. This book is her dramatic story, as highlighted in a Katie Couric interview on “Dateline NBC.”

“In this remarkably honest and unaffected memoir … Burnham makes no attempt to dramatize these events for shock value, nor does she use this book as an occasion for Christian triumphalism…. A much wider audience [than just Christians] will appreciate Burnham’s brave, artless account of these horrific events.” –Publishers Weekly
