Easter Sunday, 23 April 2000. Time: 19.50.A diver’s paradise in Malaysia turns in seconds into a tropical hell for the Wallert family. An extremist Islamic rebel group takes them hostage and they are transferred to the Philippine island of Jolo. The days, and then months, become a torture for the hostages as the carefully planned commando operation tries to extort political concessions and money from the Philippine government. Ten divers from Germany, France, South Africa, Lebanon and Finland, and eleven hotel employees and WWF rangers find themselves political chips of Philippine and international politics — and of the media —as the fate of the author, his wife Renate, his son Marc, their fellow captives and the heavily armed hostage-takers is followed day by day for weeks by journalists and the media. This true story tells the experiences of the hostages—what they lived through and suffered, and their hopes, anxieties and disappointments. Marc Wallert was the last member of the author’s family to be freed. The last chapters capture what life is like as a short-term-celebrity after the release.

Ruth Bell Graham is known as the wife of evangelist Billy Graham. It was Ruth who influenced Billy, as his most trusted life-partner. In Ruth, a Portrait, we meet this fascinating and remarkable woman. Brimming with anecdotes, this is a breathtaking journey, with stops at many of this century's epoch-making events. The childhood years of the future Mrs. Billy Graham were spent light-years away--in the China of the 1920s and 1930s. The daughter of medical missionaries, she and her family were caught in a crucible of unspeakable hardship; in addition to pestilence and plague, there was the unstable political and military turmoil surrounding the Nationalist government, the Communists, and the Japanese invaders. These hazardous realities shaped Ruth Bell and her family, a family inured to difficulties, but buoyed up by their deep belief in God's abiding will. Virtually raised by the Grahams, the author is a repository of Ruth Bell Graham's stories and has seen firsthand the spirit of this courageous woman. Patricia Cornwell not only gives readers a full, rounded, and intimate portrait of Ruth Bell Graham, but also insight into the life of the Graham family and particularly Billy Graham. From the Trade Paperback edition.
