A House in the Sky: A Memoir
Growing up in a violent home, reading old issues of National Geographic was Amanda Lindhout’s only form of escape. This childhood hobby ignited her passion for travel which led to a career as a TV reporter in warn-torn Afghanistan and Iraq. In August of 2008, Lindhout traveled to Somalia, known as the most dangerous country on Earth. On her fourth day, she was abducted by a group of masked men and was held hostage for 460 days.
Exquisitely vivid and suspenseful, Lindhout’s story of survival is a page-turner that you won’t be able to put down.
