For a full year, Gracia and her missionary pilot husband, Martin, were hostages to 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. Said Publishers Weekly: “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.” New York Times best seller; Gold Medallion winner. Published by Tyndale, 2003. Also published in Dutch, French, German and Swedish.
