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. G.T.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
