558 days of hell. Two souls intertwined in body and spirit. One Almighty God. This is the story of kidnapping victims, Yolande and Pierre Korkie, as told by Yolande. Pierre never survived to tell the tale.

In this raw and honest memoir, Yolande relives the couple’s kidnapping and brutal severance from their children and life as they knew it.
