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, the twenty-seven-year- old widowed mother of a six-year-old girl shares for the first time the little-known details of her traumatic ordeal and expands on how her faith and the bestselling book The Purpose-Driven registered]Life helped her survive and bring the killer's murderous rampage to a peaceful end. Like her captor, Smith too has faced darkness and despair. Yet, even during the most desolate times of her life, she yearned for something better. 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. Ashley had paid only passing attention to media coverage of the unfolding manhunt. man with nothing left to lose. Unlikely Angel is Ashley's gripping, powerful account of how this nightmare scenario developed into a remarkable connection between a man wanted for multiple murders and a single mother struggling to make a fresh beginning from her troubled past. Juxtaposing the minute-by-minute tale of her experience with the never-before-told tragedies and triumphs of her own life, Unlikely Angel is a story that will leave no reader untouched. Ashley has made appearances on Oprah, Good Morning America, 20/20, and Larry King Live.… (més)

An easy read. Quite an interesting story of the hours she spent with her kidnapper. Almost left you with feeling bad for the guy, as you can sorta see how he found himself where he was. But she does a good job of bringing you back to reality and reminding you that he WAS the bad guy.

She spends ALOT of time talking about her faith...understandable given the experience, but just a tad bit boring when repeated so much. ( )

Surprisingly well written, this poor girl was a druggie who was on her way to losing her kid and just barely living. Then this dude shows up and she gives him a moment of pause. Hope she's still doing well ( )

I was prepared not to like this book because the over-saturation of media attention surrounding the events. It was recommended to me by my sister and thought I would just borrow it rather than own it. It turned out to be one of the better true stories I have read. It was very interesting to find out about the "behind the scenes" action going on during her hours of captivity. She had great courage and used the experience to turn her life around. Very inspiring and I would definitely recommend it. ( )
