The blue line by Ingrid Betancourt( Book )

23 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the extraordinary Colombian French politician and activist Ingrid Betancourt, a stunning debut novel about freedom and fate. Set against the backdrop of Argentina's Dirty War and infused with magical realism, The Blue Line is a breathtaking story of love and betrayal by one of the world's most renowned writers and activists. Ingrid Betancourt, author of the New York Times bestselling memoir Even Silence Has an End, draws on history and personal experience in this deeply felt portrait of a woman coming of age as her country falls deeper and deeper into chaos. Buenos Aires, the 1970s. Julia inherits from her grandmother a gift, precious and burdensome. Sometimes visions appear before her eyes, mysterious and terrible apparitions from the future, seen from the perspective of others. From the age of five, Julia must intervene to prevent horrific events. In fact, as her grandmother tells her, it is her duty to do so--otherwise she will lose her gift. At fifteen, Julia falls in love with Theo, a handsome revolutionary four years her senior. Their lives are turned upside down when Juan Peron, the former president and military dictator, returns to Argentina. Confronted by the realities of military dictatorship, Julia and Theo become Montoneros sympathizers and radical idealists, equally fascinated by Jesus Christ and Che Guevara. Captured by death squadrons, they somehow manage to escape. In this remarkable novel, Betancourt, an activist who spent more than six years held hostage by the FARC in the depths of Colombian jungle, returns to many of the themes of Even Silence Has an End. A tale of extraordinary women, The Blue Line is a story centered on the consequences of oppression, collective subservience, and individual courage, and, most of all, the notion that belief in the future of humanity is an act of faith most beautiful and deserving."--

Throwing stones at the moon : narratives from Colombians displaced by violence by Sibylla Brodzinsky( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For nearly five decades, Colombia has been embroiled in internal armed conflict among guerrilla groups, paramilitary militias, and the country's own armed forces. Civilians in Colombia face a range of abuses from all sides, including killings, disappearances and rape--and more than four million have been forced to flee their homes. The oral histories in Throwing Stones at the Moon describe the most widespread consequences of Colombia's human rights crises: forced displacement. Narrators recount life before displacement, the reasons for their flight, and their struggle to rebuild their lives."--Page 4 of cover
Until death do us part : my struggle to reclaim Colombia by Ingrid Betancourt( Book )

33 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ingrid Betancourt, a senator and a presidential candidate in Colombia, grew up among diplomats, literati, and artists who congregated at her parents' elegant home in Paris, France. Her father served as Colombia's ambassador to UNESCO and her mother, a political activist, continued her work on behalf of the country's countless children whose lives were being destroyed by extreme poverty and institutional neglect. Intellectually, Ingrid was influenced by Pablo Neruda and other Latin American writers like Gabriel GarcIa MArquez, who frequented her parents' social circle. She studied at Ecole de Sciences Politiques de Paris, a prestigious academy in France. From this charmed life, Ingrid Betancourt -- not yet thirty, happily married to a French diplomat, and a mother of two children -- returned to her native country in the late 1980s. On what was initially just a visit, she found her country under internal siege from the drug cartels and the corrupt government that had allowed them to flourish. After seeing what had become of Colombia's democracy, she didn't feel she could leave. Until Death Do Us Part is the deeply personal story of a woman who gave up a life of comfort and safety to become a political leader in a country being slowly demolished by terrorism, violence, fear, and a pervasive sense of hopelessness. It is a country where democracy has been sacrificed for the well-being of the few, where international criminals determine policy, and where political assassinations are a way of life. Now forty, Ingrid Betancourt has been elected and reelected as a representative and as a senator in Colombia's national legislature. She has founded a political party that has openly confronted Colombia's leaders and has earned the respect of a nation. And now she has become a target of the establishment and the drug cartels behind it. Forced to move her children out of Colombia for protection against death threats, Ingrid Betancourt remained and continued to fight the political structure that has crumbled under the destructive power of the paramilitary forces, the financial omnipotence of the drug cartels, and the passivity of governmentfor-sale. Here is a political cocktail that has destroyed countless lives in Colombia and has spread to countries beyond its borders. A memoir of a life in politics that reads like a fastpaced political thriller, Until Death Do Us Part -- already an international bestseller -- is a hair-raising account of one woman's fight against the establishment. It is a story of a woman whose love for her country and faith in democracy gave her the courage to stand up to the power that has subjugated, intimidated, or corrupted all those who opposed it. A chilling account of the dangerous, byzantine machine that runs Colombia, it is also an inspiring story of privilege, sacrifice, and true patriotism

La ligne bleue roman by Ingrid Betancourt( Recording )

3 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Buenos Aires, années 70. Julia a hérité de sa grand-mère Josefina un don précieux et encombrant : parfois des scènes de l'avenir lui apparaissent, vues à travers le regard d'un autre. À charge pour elle d'interpréter sa vision. Dès l'âge de cinq ans, elle doit intervenir pour empêcher le déroulement d'événements malheureux. L'histoire de Julia va basculer lors du retour de Perón en Argentine. Sympathisants du mouvement des Montoneros, elle et son compagnon vont connaître le destin de cette jeunesse idéaliste et révolutionnaire d'Amérique latine, fascinée tout autant par la figure du Christ que par celle de Che Guevara et confrontée à la réalité de la dictature militaire. Capturés par des escadrons de la mort, ils réussiront à s'évader ... On retrouve ici certains des thèmes qui traversaient Même le silence a une fin, le grand récit d'Ingrid Betancourt relatant ses années de captivité dans la jungle : la privation de liberté et ses conséquences, le courage individuel et la servilité collective, l'espoir en l'avenir de l'humanité considéré comme un acte de foi. Mais de ce dilemme entre le choix de la vengeance et celui de la vie, elle a d'abord fait la matière d'un vrai roman d'aventures
