NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- November 8 marks the one year anniversary of the release of Kenneth Bae, the longest-held U.S. prisoner in North Korean history. Next spring he will break his silence surrounding his life-changing ordeal, from his surprise arrest to a US government negotiated release in a new book from W Publishing Group, an imprint of Thomas Nelson.
Not Forgotten: The True Story of My Imprisonment in North Korea (W Publishing Group, ISBN 9780718079635, $26.99, May 2016), is the gripping real-life drama of one man's terrifying experience under one of the most repressive and abusive governments in the world. However, it is also a look into the heart of a man driven to help the people of North Korea – one whom ends up sentenced to fifteen years of hard labor with the threat of never seeing his family again.
In Not Forgotten, Kenneth will share details from the first harrowing moments of his ordeal to his globally publicized release, while offering a firsthand look into one of the most shrouded countries in the world.
Through it all, Kenneth never wavers in his love for the North Korean people, even his captors. His story will offer readers both a compelling narrative of one man's dedication to serving the less fortunate and a modern testament of God's faithfulness.
