In September 2011 Judith Tebbutt and her husband David set out on an adventurous holiday to Kenya. A couple for 33 years, they had first met in Zambia - Africa had played a major part in their life together. After a joyous week on safari in the Masai Mara, they flew on to a beach resort 40 kilometres south of Somalia. And there, in the early hours of 11 September, tragedy struck. Judith was torn away from David by a band of armed pirates, dragged over sea and land to a village in the arid heart of lawless Somalia, and there held hostage in a squalid room, a ransom on her head. There, too, she learned the terrible truth that the responsibility of securing her release now rested with her son Ollie. But though she was isolated, intimidated and near-starved, Judith resolved to survive - walking endless circuits of her nine-foot prison, trying to make her captors see her as a human being.
