In March 2005, Ashley Smith made headlines around the globe when she miraculously talked her way out of the hands of alleged courthouse killer Brian Nichols after he took her hostage for seven hours in her suburban Atlanta apartment. In this moving, inspirational account—now a motion picture from Paramount—Ashley shares the details of her traumatic ordeal and expands on how her faith and the bestselling book The Purpose Driven Life helped her survive and bring the killer's murderous rampage to a peaceful end.
Like her captor, Smith too had faced darkness and despair. Seeking a new life, she moved to Atlanta, got a job, enrolled in a medical assistant training program, and was beginning to find her way to becoming the kind of mom she wanted her little girl to have. Then Brian Nichols took her hostage. Just hours earlier, he'd allegedly shot to death a judge, a court reporter, a deputy, and a federal agent and escaped in a stolen vehicle. Now she found herself face-to-face with Nichols, a desperate, heavily armed man with nothing left to lose.
Juxtaposing the minute-by-minute tale of her experience with the tragedies and triumphs of her own life, Captive is a riveting story that will leave no reader untouched.
Ashley Smith lives in North Augusta, South Carolina with her husband Daniel Robinson and her three children Paige, Riley, and Cole. She is an imaging technician at University Hospital, loves to run, paint and enjoys crafts. She also travels the world and shares her story through public speaking, and finds it very rewarding.
Stacy Mattingly is an Atlanta-based writer.
“...a newly minted author and celebrity.”
“A remarkable tale of redemption.”
“Smith leads the reader through the long, dangerous night, minute-by-minute.”
“...could serve as a companion volume to The Purpose-Driven Life.
“Smith’s revelations offer a new wrinkle to a story that...captivated the country.”
