Kidnapped on February 23, 2002, Betancourt has become an international symbol in the struggle for liberty and the fight against barbarity. Before being captured by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), she was a voice of hope for the Colombian people, leading a courageous fight against political corruption, violence and illegal detentions.
Presented in this small, poignant book is Betancourt's letter to her mother printed in English, French and Spanish. From the depths of the Colombian jungle, Betancourt's words are an impassioned declaration of love to those dearest to her.
In addition to this letter is a response to Betancourt written by her children, who since they were teenagers have rallied public support for their mother's release. With a preface by Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Elie Wiesel, Letters to My Mother conveys a powerful message of love for family and country, and a heartrending plea for freedom.
