SIX YEARS IN THE HANOI HILTON

The Jim Shively Story of Extraordinary Courage and Survival in Vietnam

SIX YEARS IN THE HANOI HILTON

Hi, I’m Amy! So glad you stopped by! I write about my favorite things: faith, family, & freedom.

I live in Hood River, Oregon, a beautiful small town outside of Portland on the Columbia River. Joining me are my windsurfing-addicted hubby, two teens and a tiny pooch. We are a mostly windsurfing, sometimes kite-surfing, paddle-boarding, waterfall-hiking crew. My new book is about my dad, Jim Shively, and the years he spent as a prisoner of war in Vietnam. It is called Six Years in the Hanoi Hilton, with a foreword by Senator John McCain. Check it out at Barnes & Noble and Amazon.

Also, I love Jesus (he saved my life, and physically healed me!), but I’m not a big fan of religion. And if you don’t know the difference, stick around!
