Even Silence Has an End - A Book Worth Reading
on November 17, 2013
I chose this rating because I have spent nearly 30 years in various countries and I know the attractions and dangers of living overseas. Naturally,I was drawn to the events in this woman's life. I couldn't help admiring and feeling a sense of pride in her courage. In many biographies women are depicted as helpless victims of the situations in which they find themselves. Quite recently, I have read several biographies in which women faced with horrendous odds remained determined to change their conditions; this has been one of them. I would recommend this book to every woman who has ever wondered what it is like to live in a country which is in a state of constant revolution. Mrs. Betancourt,was not only confronted with the possibility of being killed by her captors, but even in freeing herself was confronted by the dangers she would encounter in the Amazon jungle. Both nature and wildlife vied for her life.
