Overview

"Letters to Mom, Beyond Hell", a book of 60 pages that presents a missive sent from the jungle by a kidnapped woman, and the later reply of her children, Melanie and Lorenzo. Ingrid Betancourt relates, in a letter to her mother, her terrible situation as a prisoner of the Colombian FARC. Suddenly, Ingrid Betancourt, captive in the Colombian jungle for more than five years, gives signs of life: in a long letter to her mother Yolanda and to her family, written in one fell swoop, she reminds them that it's them who maintain her with her head outside of the water, them who don't allow her to drown in forgetfulness, nothingness and despair. Presented here by her children, her message is a vibrant declaration of love as well as an apology of freedom, equalling the big texts of History. In reply, her daughter Melanie, who had been raising opinions and mobilizing rulers since she was 16 to save her mother, together with her brother Lorenzo, send her a deep, moving, shaking message. Cartas a mamá, más allá del infierno, un libro de 60 páginas que presenta una misiva enviada por la secuestrada desde la selva y la posterior respuesta de sus hijos, Melanie y Lorenzo. Ingrid Betancourt relata, en una carta a su madre, su terrible situación como cautiva de las FARC colombianas. Repentinamente, Ingrid Betancourt, cautiva en la selva colombiana desde hace más de cinco años, da señales de vida: en una larga carta a su madre Yolanda y a su familia, escrita de un plumazo, les recuerda que son ellos los que la mantienen con la cabeza fuera del agua, los que no la dejan ahogarse en el olvido, la nada y la desesperanza. Su mensaje, presentado aquí por sus hijos, es una vibrante declaración de amor así como una apología de la libertad a la altura de los grandes textos de la Historia. En respuesta, su hija, Mélanie, quien suscita opiniones y moviliza gobernantes desde los 16 años para salvar a su madre, junto con su hermano Lorenzo, le envían un profundo y estremecedor mensaje.
