Captive: book review & giveaway

10:08:00 AM

Ever feel utterly captivated by a book? Like you are so mesmerized you literally cannot put it down? This is how Captive {the untold story of the Atlanta hostage hero} was for me. Imagine my delight when I found out there is a movie made by Paramount about it as well!

I think the thing that got me the most was how completely different the character in the book is from most people's reality. From her husband, her daughter, her habits, lifestyle and then to on top of it be taken captive in her own home. But she then spiritually leads her capturer into turning himself in to the authorities. A man that killed multiple people and had also threatened to do so to her as well.

The book had me engaged the entire time. It was very well written and it painted a great picture that I could visually see in my head as well. I love that in the center of the book it shows actual pictures of Ashley Smith as well as Brian Nichols {the man that took her hostage for 7 hours}

Ashley was in the depths of despair. She was looking for a way out of her horrible habits and was trying desperately to create a life for herself so she could then in return make a life for her daughter as well. It is amazing to me how God works within each one of us. He knew she needed this very moment to "snap out of it". To take her life into her own hands and to come clean. Nothing had worked before this moment. It was like a switch had been flipped within her. What happened over the course of 7 hours was miraculous. And to think a book many of us have read {The Purpose Driven Life} gave her the tools she needed. God prevailed.
