Tale of Kidnapping Inspirational

Amanda Lindhout, along with Sara Corbett, has written a riveting tale of her kidnapping and captivity during a trip to Somalia.

I first became interested in Lindhout’s story when I caught a glimpse of an interview on a television program.  How, I wondered, does someone survive such a horrendous experience?

A House in the Sky, is both haunting in its candidness and incredibly inspirational.  It displays the depravity of human nature and the indefatigable strength of spirit.

The description in the book, along with Amanda’s willingness to self-reflect, makes for a very engaging read, and more than that, I have found a modern-day heroine from whom I have drawn strength for my own life’s struggles.

Amanda Lindhout’s organization is Global Enrichment Foundation.
