9780060008918: Until Death Do Us Part

A memoir of a life in politics that reads like a fast-paced thriller, UNTIL DEATH DO US PART is the passionate story of Ingrid Betancourt's struggle against international criminals and her open confrontation of a government infested with liars and the mafia. Ingrid Betancourt grew up among artists and diplomats in elegant surroundings in Paris. Her father served as Colombia's ambassador to UNESCO and her mother, a political activist, has fought on behalf of Colombia's children for years. Ingrid was happily married to a French diplomat, with two young children, when she decided to return to Colombia to fight against the corruption ruining her country. She has been elected and re-elected as a representative and as a senator with the highest majority in the country. Her life and her family have been threatened on numerous occasions, forcing her to send her children to live with their father in New Zealand. Now running for president she was kidnapped by members of FARC in Feb and has not been seen since.

Review:

There were news stories in THE GUARDIAN and THE TIMES, on 25 July about the fact that nothing is being done to secure Ingrid's release. There was an excellent extract in the SUNDAY TELEGRAPH review section on 7 July and reviews are still coming in: 'This book is the gripping autobiography of a woman who stood up to Colombia's corrupt political elite and has been rewarded, at the time of writing with four months of captivity at the hands of left-wing rebels.... Highly recommended reading.'Michael McCaughan, THE IRISH TIMES UNTIL DEATH DO US PART is a story of extraordinary love: love for her parents, love for her children and love for her country'.THE DAILY MAIL Laetitia Cash Reviewsstill to come in LITERARY REVIEW, AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL and THE NEW STATESMAN

About the Author:

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc. Paperback / softback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Until Death Do Us Part, Ingrid Betancourt, In 2002, Colombian senator, anticorruption crusader, and presidential candidate Ingrid Betancourt was kidnapped by leftist guerrillas. She was their prisoner for more than six years. Until now.Until Death Do Us Part is the deeply personal autobiography of an extraordinary woman who gave up a life of comfort and safety to become a political leader in a country slowly being demolished by terrorism, violence, fear, and a pervasive sense of hopelessness. A memoir that reads like a fast-paced political thriller--at once poignant, chilling, and inspiring--it is a story of a reformer, a mother, a patriot whose love for her country and faith in democracy gave her the courage to stand up to the power that has subjugated, intimidated, or corrupted all those who opposed it . . . and ultimately paid an unimaginable price for her commitment.
