Betancourt, Ingrid, 1961-

Even silence has an end / Ingrid Betancourt. - London : Virago, 2010. - 594 pages ; 24 cm.

Cover subtitle: My six years of captivity in the Colombian jungle.

Born in Bogota and raised in France, Ingrid Betancourt gave up a life of comfort to return to Colombia. In 2002, while campaigning as a presidental candidate, she was abducted by the FARC, a brutal terrorist guerilla organisation. She spent the next six and a half years in the jungle, constantly on the move, often chained, sometimes by the neck, day and night. The facts are astounding, but it is Betancourt's indomitable spirit that drives this special account, a meditation on the very stuff of life: fear and freedom, hope and what inspires it.
