"A miraculous adventure story . . . a fascinating, no-frills account. . . . This raw, cautionary tale [is] a page-turner." --Cruising World On October 23, 2009, Paul and Rachel Chandler were kidnapped from their sailing boat in the Seychelles, an archipelago in the Indian Ocean. Their yacht, Lynn Rival, was recovered six days later by naval forces, abandoned off the central Somali coast, almost 1,000 miles away. After the attack, Paul and Rachel were taken first onto a previously hijacked merchant ship and then to Somalia, where they were held for over a year, enduring threats, intimidation, solitary confinement, and even whippings while their captors tried to extort millions of dollars from their middle-class family. In this remarkable book, the Chandlers recount their terrifying ordeal, day by day, revealing the inspiring and poignant story behind the dramatic headlines. At the heart of their survival was their unshakable belief in each other and their determination to survive. It is this that makes Hostage an unlikely love story--for Paul and Rachel, death at times seemed preferable to being separated. Paul Chandler is a Cambridge-educated civil engineer and Rachel Chandler is a former government economist. Both have a passion for sailing and traveling and honed their seamanship skills over some 30 years in the waters around the UK and the Mediterranean.
