About the Book and Movie:

CAPTIVE, based on a miraculous true story that drew the attention of the entire nation, is a thrilling drama about the spiritual collision of two broken lives. When Brian Nichols - on the run as the subject of a city wide manhunt and desperate to make contact with his newborn son - takes recovering meth addict Ashley Smith hostage in her own apartment, she turns for guidance to Rick Warren’s best-selling inspirational book, The Purpose Driven Life. While reading aloud, Ashley and her would-be killer each face crossroads where despair and death intersect hope.

My Review

I used to live in Atlanta when Brian Nichols made the news. Some members of my household thought Smith and Nichols did more than read the Purpose Driven Life. It was nice to read her story, instead of speculation and rumors among family and friends. Before any of the drama happened, Smith was moving.Her husband was murder four years prior.  She was working two jobs. She had lost custody of her child and wanted to work to get her daughter back. Little did she know, one night would change her life. She saw Nichols in the parking lot and could have driven off, but she choose to take the risk and enter her home, captive. 

You can purchase Captive: The Untold Story of the Atlanta Hostage Heroon Amazon in Kindle, Paperback, Audible, and Audio CD format.  The movie is also out in theatres now.
