   schema:description "When in 2008 a young, somewhat naive young Canadian freelance journalist travelled to Somalia, neither she, not anyone could have expected the trials that awaited her. Held at gunpoint in the capital Mogadishu in August 2008 by a group of teenage Islamic extremists, she and three of her crew were taken hostage. Captive for 460 days in horrifying conditions, tortured, chained in an animal shed, emaciated and almost losing the will to live, Amanda and her kidnap dominated the world's media. Finally rescued and disturbed by what had befallen her, Amanda struggled to cope. In her gripping, harrowing memoir of her time in captivity she details her terrifying ordeal but offers an uplifting and optimistic message - that courage and bravery saw one woman survive a journey into hell."@en ;
