This is an extremely well written story of 15 months of captivity and torture of two young travellers at the hands of Islamic extremists and demented individuals. I high recommend it as a story of endurance, survival, hope and in the end, Love. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to know the unvarnished truth about how some people act in the most evil ways and excuse it through religion and others who overcome it all through the strength of their inner character and determination to survive.

A great rom com

This was the complete opposite of what I usually listen to but it was just lovely and I dare anyone not to love Brody and her story of living and loving and following your dreams with charm, integrity and humour.

Absolutely a fabulous book and a treat to listen to

This unique book gave me an insight into the horrors of the crimes of the residential schools and the harm that it perpetrated onto families and children. At the same time, it is a thrilling narrative on the joy of sport and its ability to transcend great emotional, psychological and physical hardship. Read with such feeling and emotion, I highly recommend it to every one but especially those Canadians who want to know more about this sordid part of our past.
