This book was facinating to me. The fact that she went through all of this...alive. It got sort of redundant in parts when she talked about her pleading with him about her child. The person who reviewed the book and said "Book neglects to mention that she gave him crystal meth in addition to prayer." That is false. That is mentioned in the book. It talks about how her husband was killed, her drug addiction past and how she used it to relate with Brian Nichols.

I've never really like the whole biography thing, but this book is amazing and the details of the story are just mind boggling! I truly loved the testimony that she ends up walking away with is more priceless to the recovery of her walk and her life than anything else that she has faced so far.

Great book and would even be a good read the second time through.

This was an amazing story, not only of the experience Ashley had while being held hostage, but also of her story of addiction and the heartache it causes. Definitely worth hearing. I liked that the author was the reader of the audio. It made it seem more real.

I'd heard about this story on the news & it seemed interesting to hear about the hostage's side of the story, but I ended up really hating this book.
I felt like the writer was very repetative & overall irritating!
I guess if you've had substance issues then you might be able to relate to her struggles & how she found salvation in her captor, but I had a tough time relating or even feeling sorry for her.
Besides the content, I felt like the book was just overall poorly written. Maybe if it was written by a 3rd party (someone with writting experiance) then I might have enjoyed it a little more?..

I didn't put the book down for a minute. I thought it was really interesting. I went onto the computer as well to look it up and was really surprised by the other comments about things. Some things did seem a little farfetched, but I still liked the story.

What a read!!! This woman just acted with God in her heart and her Angel behind her. I think this man was sent to her home & she was to act as his stairway to God. Chilling situtation, but thrilling ending. Perfect read.

This is an amazing story told by the person it actually happened to. Hearing her voice recount the events and the history that lead her through those moments in her life was riveting. There is a verse about God choosing foolish things to confound the wise. This is a good example, no one could have predicted this, but it happened. My favorite books encourage me in my faith, and this story does that. My advise, read it or listen to it and be encouraged. Choices make our lives the trick is to make the ones God wants us to. Ashley keep making godly choices and I'll try to do the same.

Surprisingly, I enjoyed this book very much. It was honest, heartfelt, and at times it even made me a little angry. There were attention grabbing twists and turns and a few tearjerkers in it. I love that you can almost feel the raw emotion of the characters at times and the author is very descriptive so it almost feels like you are there with them.
Great book and I would recommend it to anyone who likes touching family struggles/drama with a hint of saving the world.

This was an unbelievable story of survival, faith, and finding your calling. I loved the author's accent, and hearing her tell her story in her own words. I loved hearing how 2 people came to know their purpose through this unlikely meeting. I especially loved knowing that it is a true story about a real person and how she rose the occasion despite her fear.
I rated this low because this book suffered from a case of horrible editing. I can't even say that this had ANY editing at all. She repeated the same 3 things ad nauseam - by the time I heard the same thing on the 3rd CD yet AGAIN, I almost stopped listening. It could have been edited down to 3 CDs, tops. All in all, it was a GREAT story. Just be forwarned that this repeats and repeats and repeats and repeats and repeats and repeats and repeats and repeats (haha you get the idea).
