A Mighty Heart

By Mariane Pearl

Non-fiction

This is the story of Daniel Pearl -- his life, his capture by terrorists and his murder. It is courageously told by his wife, Mariane, who was with him in Karachi, Pakistan, at the time of his capture and was pregnant with their first child, a son -- Adam, now age 5.

The story is heartbreaking because it is true. Pearl was a much-loved and respected journalist who did what he did so that readers would get the complete story about what was going on in the troubled areas he covered for the Wall Street Journal.

This book should be required reading in order to bring the personal tragedies to life that happen everyday in our world.
