Krestova woman negotiated kidnapped daughter’s release

A Krestova woman has written a book about negotiating for the release of her kidnapped daughter.

Lorinda Stewart is Amanda Lindhout’s mother and has just published a memoir entitled One Day Closer.

Within its pages she writes of bargaining with her daughter’s Somalian abductors.

Stewart says she hopes the book can help others who find themselves in impossible situations.

Lindhout was kidnapped in Somalia in 2008 and wasn’t released until 15 months later.

Stewart lived in Balfour before the ordeal and moved to Krestova late last year. She came to the area because her sons are here.

She’ll do a reading in Nelson later this month.
