Publisher's Summary

For five weeks, the world waited for news about Danny Pearl, the Wall Street Journal reporter who was kidnapped in Karachi, Pakistan. And then came the broadcast of his shocking murder. The complete account of his abduction, the intense effort to rescue him, and the aftermath are told here in astonishing detail, and with courage and insight by his surviving wife, Mariane. A Mighty Heart is the unforgettable story of two journalists who fell in love with their work and with each other. Together, Mariane and Danny Pearl traveled across the globe, with a dedication to journalism that would increase understanding of international politics and of ethnic and religious conflict. In the end, Danny was caught in the dangerous fissure where warring cultures, politics, and ideologies collide. A Mighty Heart is both a portrait of a partnership built on the ideals of love, truth, and justice and a critical look at the methods and structure of the Al Qaeda network.

Critic Reviews

"Plenty of words have been written about the Pearl abduction, but these are by far the most personal and most poignant." (Booklist)
"A brave and beautifully written book...Mariane Pearl moves beyond horror and grief to write elegantly and knowledgeably about the vortex of religion, politics, and terrorism into which her husband was swept." (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

Emotional

This book was outstanding. It allowed an insight into what was going on and the frustration of all. My heart went out to the family. The emotions that are displayed in this book are heartwrenching but the strength of Mariane was commendable.

What would you feel if it was you ....

Many words have been written about the loss of the journalist Daniel Pearl. These words are from his wife, her words, the story we think that we know, but we don't. They are moving, from the flashes of incredible intimacy to the descriptions of the worlds and cultures we have yet to fully understand. Her distinctive voice tells a story and her story will take you on a journey of culture, emotions and immense pain but it should also leave you with a lasting image of love and strength.
