Hope : a memoir of survival in Cleveland

Berry, Amanda, 1986-2015
Books, Manuscripts
On May 6, 2013, Amanda Berry made headlines around the world when she fled a Cleveland home and called 911, saying: 'Help me, I'm Amanda Berry. I've been kidnapped, and I've been missing for ten years'. A horrifying story rapidly unfolded. Ariel Castro, a school bus driver, had separately lured Berry and two other young women, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, to his home, where he trapped them and kept them chained. In the decade that followed, the three girls were raped, psychologically abused and threatened with death if they attempted to escape. Years after she was taken, Berry had a daughter by their captor, a child she bravely raised as normally as possible. Drawing on their recollections and the secret diary kept by Amanda, Amanda and Gina describe the unimaginable torment they suffered and the strength and resourcefulness that enabled them to survive.
