Rezensionen
" Exquisitely told ...[A House in the Sky] is much more than a gonzo adventure tale gone awry-it's a young woman's harrowing coming-of-age story and an extraordinary narrative of forgiveness and spiritual triumph ....There's no self-pity or grandiosity in these pages. In the cleanest prose, she and Corbett allow events both horrific and absurd...to unfold on their own. Lindhout's resilience transforms the story from a litany of horrors into a humbling encounter with the human spirit ." Eliza Griswold The New York Times Book Review
