Captive by Ashley Smith REVIEW #FOLLOWYOURPURPOSE #FLYBY @flybypromotions Review and Giveaway

CAPTIVE, based on a miraculous true story that drew the attention of the entire nation, is a thrilling drama about the spiritual collision of two broken lives. When Brian Nichols - on the run as the subject of a city wide manhunt and desperate to make contact with his newborn son - takes recovering meth addict Ashley Smith hostage in her own apartment, she turns for guidance to Rick Warren’s best-selling inspirational book, The Purpose Driven Life. While reading aloud, Ashley and her would-be killer each face crossroads where despair and death intersect hope.

This was a book that I could not put down. It captured my attention from the beginning to the end. It was amazing to see how God was working in Ashley Smiths life. I think it's so great that she credits God for many miracles that took place during her ordeal.

Captive is now a major motion picture from Paramount. Starting September 18, it is being released in theaters. The movie stars David Oyelowo, who played Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the recent film, Selma. I can't wait to see it!
