I remember seeing the press regarding this awful kidnap and wondering what it must have been like to not only be kidnapped but also lose your partner at the same time. Judith's detailed account is told in a very open, descriptive and honest way with emotion but with no overt sense of self-pity. Her courage, strength and mental determination comes through very clearly in her writing leaving the reader not only somewhat in awe of her mind at the time but also making you wonder if it was a fiction novel you were reading. And not in a bad way. For one human to experience such terror but remain so mindful is testament to the human spirit.
