Buy "Somewhere Inside" by Laura and Lisa Ling and Support LiNK!

Laura and Lisa Ling's book, "Somewhere Inside: One Sister's Captivity in North Korea and the Other's Fight to Bring Her Home", is out and today they were on The Oprah Show (see video here).

What's great is that a portion of the book sales will be donated to LiNK (Liberty in North Korea). More from LiNK:

It has been just over a year since two American journalists were violently apprehended on the Chinese border while on assignment with Current TV for a documentary on North Koreans desperately fleeing their homeland. Laura Ling and Euna Lee were chased down by North Korean soldiers and charged with trespassing and “hostile acts” and sentenced to twelve years of hard labor in a prison camp.

When news of the arrest reached Laura’s sister, journalist and Oprah Winfrey Show correspondent Lisa Ling, she immediately began a campaign to get her sister released. Five months later, former President Bill Clinton was sent on a mission to North Korea - to bring the journalists home.

In her account, "Somewhere Inside: One Sister’s Captivity in North Korea and the Other’s Fight to Bring Her Home," Laura reveals for the first time what really happened on the river, her treatment by North Korean guards, and the deprivations and rounds of interrogations she endured, while Lisa writes about her unrelenting efforts to secure Laura and Euna's release by navigating the media and people at the highest levels of government.

The Lings will be donating portions of the proceeds to LiNK to help support our rescue missions and our shelters in China and Southeast Asia.
