The 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 fifteen months of harrowing captivity in Somalia ? a story of courage, resilience, and extraordinary grace.Amanda Lindhout?s intimate account illuminates the psychology, motivations, and desperate extremism of her abductors. Kept in chains, starved and abused, she survives by imagining herself in a "house in the sky," finding strength and hope in the power of her own mind.
