Primrose Hill Books
Along a dusty road on her fourth day, she was abducted by a group of masked gunmen. Held hostage for days, Amanda converted to Islam as a way to survive. Moved between a series of derelict desert houses, she was given 'wife lessons' by one of her captors and kept herself sane by invoking memories of the world she'd experienced before captivity.
At her most desperate she'd visit a house in the sky, high above the woman kept in chains, in the dark, being totured. She survived on strategy, fortitude, and hope - and risked everything on a daring escape. Vivid and suspenseful, A House in the Sky is the searingly intimate story of an intrepid young woman and her search for compassion in the face of unimaginable adversity. In , she and members of her entourage were kidnapped by Islamist insurgents in southern Somalia.
She was released 15 months later on November 25, , and has since embarked on a philanthropic career. I am still reading this book but find it hard to put down!! I saw Amanda on Denton and am so glad i purchased her story. Help Centre. My Wishlist Sign In Join. Write a review.
