Nigel Brennan was captured alongside Amanda Lindhout. This is his side of the story and the struggle and pain that his family went through to set him free. Unbelievable story!

I was looking forward to reading this book but I was very disappointed. It was sooooo boring. I skipped the parts that Nicole and Kellie wrote and only read Nigel's story. A House in the Sky was 100% better than this book.
