Read Amanda's mother's new bestselling memoir!

A brave, small-town mother with no experience in hostage negotiations, Lorinda was called upon to be the lead communicator with the Somali English-speaking negotiator for Amanda’s kidnappers. Lorinda joined forces with federal officers and began answering calls from Adam, establishing a fragile rapport of trust with the man who held her daughter’s fate in his hands. As negotiations broke down, Lorinda found herself increasingly on her own. But she never gave up hope, even when the phone calls became more traumatic.One Day Closer is the true story of one mother’s heroic perseverance in the face of despair, and of the hope and healing to be found beyond trauma. It is also, above all, a tribute to the extraordinary power of a mother’s love.
