I was given the “Captive” book in exchange for this review.
Wow! That's what I think after I read this book. She survived and found her purpose. She was able to survive by sympathizing with him.
I liked in the beginning when she says “…I was going to agree with everything he said and try to feel his feelings…”. She first prayed for her life and then she tried to connect with him. It was a desperate situation and she had to do what she had to do. Now I won't spoil anymore. There's also a movie coming out Friday the 18th of the same name.
What is your purpose?
