In May of 2005, Beth Holloway received the worst phone call a parent can imagine. Her beautiful daughter, Natalee Holloway, had disappeared without a trace in Aruba during her high school senior class trip. Two years later, for the very first time –– Beth Holloway steps forward –– in this astonishingly candid and inspirational memoir to tell of her harrowing ordeal. She reveals that it is her never–ending belief in the power of hope against all odds which has given her a strength and a sense of deep faith she never could have imagined.
In 2005, the disappearance of Beth Holloway's daughter and her almost single–handed campaign to find her and to seek justice, became the number one reported news story of the year, and is still making headlines around the world to this day. Still, Beth never spoke candidly to the media about her emotions and personal journey, choosing only to focus on the facts of her mission: to find her daughter, dead or alive. Two years later, with the publication of this book, Beth will open her heart and personal experiences with her readers and the public in a way that will serve not only as a gut wrenching true crime story, but as an inspirational tale of the power of hope.
