Product description

Review

Judith Tebbutt's story is inspiring, and leaves you with the feeling that if this woman could show such fortitude, then so might we all ... Her story of terror, despair and survival is as gripping as any thriller, yet told sparely, with no self-pity. It is a testament to the resilience of the individual spirit, but also the the strength of family love ... Vivid and detailed enough to place you firmly in the showed of this extraordinary woman ... A book which is a passionate affirmation of life. (Daily Mail)

A detailed, touching account, revealing not just how she coped but also her tenderness for her husband. (Colin Freeman Daily Telegraph 2013-07-13)

Judith Tebbutt's book about being kidnapped and held to ransom is a wonderfully restrained story of survival against adversity and grief. (Libby Purves The Times)

A riveting tale of human fortitude ... A Long Walk Home is an extraordinary tale. Not only is it an action-packed account of a kidnapping and hostage situation, it is also the story of how the author triumphed psychologically against terror, semi-­starvation and isolation ...The result is a page-turner in which the action moves at a pace ... Fast-paced though the action is, it is the psychological story that compels. (Sian Griffiths Sunday Times 2013-07-14)

This powerful book captures the urgency of telling even the darkest of stories, and evokes the power of resilience in adversity ... A book that begins with a horrific death becomes a clarion call to cherish whatever we might have left of life.' (Anita Sethi Observer)

A keenly vivid memoir. (Craig Brown Mail on Sunday)
