In this Jan. 18, 2017 photo, Sulome Anderson, journalist and daughter of former American hostage Terry Anderson, holds a photograph of herself, lower right, with her father shortly after his return from Lebanon at her home in New York. Sulome said a multi-year retracing of her father’s harrowing ordeal repaired their tattered relationship. Sulome describes the quest in “The Hostage’s Daughter,” a recently published book. Her effort to research the 1985 kidnapping of Terry Anderson in Beirut, Lebanon, eventually brought her face-to-face with one of his captors. Ultimately, it led her to see eye-to-eye with her father again. (AP Photo/Kathy Willens)
