Soon after September 11, the news media stepped up its coverage of Martin and Gracia Burnham, the missionary couple held hostage in the Philippine jungle by terrorists with ties to Osama bin Laden. After a year of captivity and a violent rescue that resulted in Martin's death, the world watched Gracia Burnham return home in June 2002.
In this riveting personal account, Burnham tells for the very first time the real story behind the news - about their harrowing ordeal, about how it affected their relationships with each other and with God, about the terrorists who held them, about the actions of the US and Philippine governments, and about how they were affected by the prayers of thousands of Christians throughout the world.

Story really moves and the reader does an excellent job. BUT! The story ends abruptly, spend your money on the longer version to get the aftermath! Now I have to buy the other audiobook for the conclusion! Grrrrr
I haven't read the printed version.
All of it, this is one of the few few books with which I could not wait to hear the next chapter.
The emotion and clarity with which she read made it seem as though Gracia was telling the story directly to me.
"What would you do?"
Good story. Difficult to listen to the pain and trials that the missionaries had to endure for so long. Thanks to the Lord for his Grace and his people
