PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC A Long Walk Home: One Woman's Story of Kidnap, Hostage, Loss and Survival i This is the story of how over a period of one hundred and ninety two days I was torn away from the life I knew and loved and dragged down to the depths of despair of how I endured enforced isolation and near starvation at the hands of Somali pirates and of how I made a choice to survive by any and all means that I could muster i .

Judith was torn away from David by a band of armed pirates dragged over sea and land to a village in the arid heart of lawless Somalia and there held hostage in a squalid room a ransom on her head There too she learned the terrible truth that the responsibility of securing her release now rested with her son Ollie .

But though she was isolated intimidated and near starved Judith resolved to survive walking endless circuits of her nine foot prison trying to make her captors see her as a human being keeping her faith at all times in Ollie .

Powerful moving and at times quite devastating this is Judith Tebbutt s story in her own words It is a memoir of the life she shared with her beloved husband an unflinching account of the ordeal that overturned her world and a testament to the inner resilience and familial love that sustained her through captivity .
