Amanda Lindhout reads her spectacularly dramatic memoir of a woman whose curiosity about the world led her from rural Canada to imperiled and dangerous countries on every continent, and then into 15 months of harrowing captivity in Somalia - a story of courage, resilience, and extraordinary grace. In August 2008, she traveled to Mogadishu, Somalia - "the most dangerous place on Earth." On her fourth day in the country, she and her photojournalist companion were abducted.
Incredible true story about resilience

A Must Read
I loved this book for so many reasons but most of all the fact that Amanda reads it herself makes it that much better. I literally could not stop listening but towards the end I was so invested in this story that I would have to take emotional breaks from some of the details. This book really puts things into perspective in a lot of ways - well written, well narrated and I would recommend to anyone.
