Paris, France (CNN) -- Former Colombian hostage Ingrid Betancourt tells the story of her six-year captivity in a book due to hit the shelves later this month, her publisher said Friday.
"Meme le Silence a une Fin," or "Even Silence Has an End," will go on sale around the world September 21, the publishing house Gallimard said.
Betancourt, a former presidential candidate in Colombia, was held for more than six years by Marxist rebels before the Colombian military rescued her and 14 others in 2008.
She now lives in France.
