The world learned the horrendous details of Martin and Gracia Burnham's yearlong captivity in Gracia's best-selling, Gold Medallion Award-winning book, In the Presence of My Enemies. In this follow-up, Gracia reflects on the lessons and spiritual truths she learned in the jungle and how they apply to anyone's life. Twenty-one brief, theme-based chapters squarely address the challenges each of us face as we pass through difficult times to take to the skies again. This book offers no pat answers or easy solutions, just the battle-tested wisdom of a woman who lived her greatest nightmare and came through it more convinced of God's grace than ever before.

Is it possible to soar—not just survive—after life has knocked you down?
Gracia Burnham understands those feelings. She and her husband, Martin, spent a horrific year as hostages among the Abu Sayyaf terrorists in the Philippines. She was rescued after a gun battle that killed her husband. But when she returned to the United States, her life was filled with uncertainty.
Using examples from the Burnhams’ year in the jungle, as well as her experiences since returning home, Gracia writes about the confusion, fear, anger, anxiety, and loss of control experienced by all people in crisis. She also relates how God longs to pour his grace into people, raising them to soar above their broken dreams.
Read by Audi Award nominee Aimee LillyFrom AudioFile:
Gracia Burnham and her husband were kidnapped by terrorists in the Philippines, and her husband was killed in a rescue attempt. When her memoir addresses her experiences, it is powerful. However, when she moves to theological concerns, she's less original, often lapsing into judgment and lack of reflection. Aimee Lilly's delivery is rich and varied. Her shifting tones match the ups and downs of Burnham's narrative, and she handles the few foreign terms with ease. Lilly is in every way professional. The only weakness is that this is such a personal and dramatic story it would be nice to have more raw emotion to match it.
