On January 31, 1993, three American missionaries serving with New Tribes Mission in the jungles of Panama were kidnapped by leftist rebels. They were taken to Columbia, only to be used as human pawns by the leaders of FARC, the communist insurgency group who has held them captive for eight years. The United States government transported the wives of the three hostages back home, and has made countless attempts to negotiate on their behalf. During the years of captivity, the families of the missionaries have worked tirelessly to gain their release. They have appeared on Larry King, The Today Show, 20/20, Good Morning America, a PBS special, and countless Christian radio and television programs. Nancy Mankins, the wife of hostage Dave Mankins, has been working with the other two wives to create a complete account of their story.

Nancy has a moving story to tell in her emotional book, but I was unimpressed with her writing; conversations seemed stilted and extremely tense moments were not brought out correctly. Read full review
