Until Death Do Us Part : My Struggle to Reclaim Colombia
A memoir of a life in politics that reads like a fast-paced thriller, UNTIL DEATH DO US PART is the passionate story of Ingrid Betancourt's struggle against international criminals and her open confrontation of a government infested with liars and the mafia. Ingrid Betancourt grew up among artists and diplomats in elegant surroundings in Paris. Her father served as Colombia's ambassador to UNESCO and her mother, a political activist, has fought on behalf of Colombia's children for years. Ingrid was happily married to a French diplomat, with two young children, when she decided to return to Colombia to fight against the corruption ruining her country. She has been elected and re-elected as a representative and as a senator with the highest majority in the country. Her life and her family have been threatened on numerous occasions, forcing her to send her children to live with their father in New Zealand. Now running for president, she was kidnapped by members of FARC in February 2003 and has not been seen since.
