“Courageous with an incredibly strong and brave spirit, all in submission and obedience to God’s will.  This is a remarkable story from a remarkable woman.”

– Bob Klamser | Executive Director, Crisis Consulting International

“That Reverend Sortor, under such horrifying circumstances, retained the presence of mind to document her experiences by writing a book on her kidnapping story is a mark of the kind of person she is. I have no hesitation in recommending the book to everyone.”

– Capt Idris I. Wada | Former Governor of Kogi State ( 2012 to 2016 )

“The story reads like a thriller waiting to be made into a movie, and like something out of the Book of Acts. It’s a story of Jesus’ followers sharing God’s love with new friends only to encounter dangers, threats, opposition, abuse, incarceration, uncertainty and suffering. But then, prayers are answered.”

– David Kendall – Bishop, FMC – USA
