15. A House in the Sky by Amanda Lindhout

“As a child, Amanda Lindhout escaped a violent household by paging through issues of National Geographic and imagining herself in its exotic locales. At the age of nineteen, working as a cocktail waitress in Calgary, Alberta, she began saving her tips so she could travel the globe. In war-ridden Afghanistan and Iraq she carved out a fledgling career as a television reporter.

Held hostage for 460 days, Amanda converts to Islam as a survival tactic, receives ‘wife lessons’ from one of her captors, and risks a daring escape. When she is most desperate, she visits a house in the sky, high above the woman kept in chains, in the dark, being tortured.” Read More.
