Summary
In November 2008, David Rohde, a Pulitzer Prize-winning correspondent for The New York Times, was kidnapped by the Taliban and held captive for seven months in neighboring Pakistan. In New York, David's wife, Kristen, together with his family and the staff of The New York Times, kept the kidnapping secret for David's safety as they struggled in vain to secure his safe release. A Rope and a Prayer is David and Kristen's account of that harrowing time. It is at once a love story and a narrative of faith, resilience, and survival that transcends the personal to illuminate the larger international tragedy of America's involvement in Afghanistan and Pakistan.-- from publisher description
