From the Back Cover

Bennie Rosato thought she had seen it all—until she meets her new client, Alice Connolly, who looks exactly like Bennie and tells her, "Hello, I'm your twin." A shocked Bennie can't deny the uncanny resemblance, but she grew up an only child and assumed she didn't have a sister, much less an identical twin. But Alice seems to know too much for it to be a scam, and Bennie can't walk away. She agrees to defend Alice on a murder charge and plunges into the mystery of the crime—unraveling a twisted skein of lies, greed, and danger that jeopardizes her livelihood and ultimately even her life. At the same time, she uncovers the truth of her own identity, a secret that will leave her questioning everything she ever knew about her family—and herself.

The story is interesting but I found the book a bit dry at times. I saw Ingrid Betancourt's interview on TV and it intrigued me enough to get this book. I wonder though, if her story is a bit one sided. I had heard that the story written by her assistant was a completely different view. However, having said that, 6 years kidnapped in the jungle would be a nightmare in itself and Ingrid has my utmost respect in having survived it.

Story Description:

Penguin Press(HC) | September 21, 2010 | Hardcover | ISBN: 978-1-59420-265-0

Ingrid Betancourt tells the story of her captivity in the Colombian jungle, sharing powerful teachings of resilience, resistance, and faith. Born in Bogota, raised in France, Ingrid Betancourt at the age of thirty-two gave up a life of comfort and safety to return to Colombia to become a political leader in a country that was being slowly destroyed by terrorism, violence, fear, and a pervasive sense of hopelessness. In 2002, while campaigning as a candidate in the Colombian presidential election, she was abducted by the FARC. Nothing could have prepared her for what came next. She would spend the next six and half years in the depth of the jungle as a prisoner of the FARC. Even Silence Has an End is her deeply personal and moving account of that time. Chained day and night for much of her captivity, she never stopped dreaming of escape and in fact, succeeded in getting away several times, always to be recaptured in her most successful effort she and a fellow captive survived a week away, but were caught when her companion became desperately ill; she learned later they had been mere miles from freedom.

The facts of her story are astounding but it is Betancourt's indomitable spirit that drives this very special account, bringing life, nuance, and profundity to the narrative. Attending as intimately to the landscape of her mind as she does to the events of her capture and captivity, Even Silence Has an End is a meditation on the very stuff of life-fear and freedom, hope and what inspires it.

This book recounts the public story of her time as a hostage as well as her personal story of coping. while her story of surviving as a hostage is inspiring, more intriguing for me was her story of how she coped and how she began to understand her psyche.

Several factors also intrigue. One is her background and links to several countries. Another is her family. Another is the myriad of political considerations.

Rather than reveal the development of her understanding,I recommend reading this unusual book in which she lucidly portrays her evolving situation.

Really great book, I couldn't put it down! It is an inspriational story about the human sprit and it's ability to overcome. When you think about how this is something that really happened and only happened a few years ago, it blows the mind.

excellent book.
I cannot imagine enduring what Betancourt, and all other prisoners endured during captivity.
My first world problems are non-existent compared to Betancourt's journey.
amazing. recommended by a friend and I will gladly pay it forward as well.

Just a great book you can't put down. Read the book in two days. What a awful ordeal these people went through, but in the end finally good luck came.
