5.0 out of 5 stars A Father's Betrayal by Gabriella Gillespie 15 Aug. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found the story gripping from the start I know about the plight of women in the Yemen. Gabriella was lucky to escape. This story needed to be told and it is time the world leader's did something to support women in this awful predicament. This is a must read for anyone who has an interest in the effects of culture on women

5.0 out of 5 stars heartbreaking! 10 Sept. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I decided to read this book after discovering the author was someone I had had the honour of being friends with a few years ago. Although I had no idea of her past and curiosity got the best of me! By the 2nd chapter I was unable to put the book down and had to keep reading, although if I am honest I found so much of it hard to read... The story was truly heartbreaking and had me in tears on numerous occasions, but I had to read on! I knew there was a happy ending waiting as I had witnesses the life Gabi and her beautiful family were now living! A MUST READ! A truly inspirational story of courage and survival. Well done Gabs... Now I understand why you were such a tough cookie! Lianne x

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't recommend this book enough! 3 Sept. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a 'must' !!!!! Could not put it down! It's hard to believe that this girl and her sisters endured what they did....due to the ignorance and culture in many middle eastern countries the treatment of women is inhumane! I praise Gabriella for her courage to escape the terrible life she had. I truly hope she found all the happiness she deserves and that she managed to continue contact with her sisters. Would have loved to read a 'follow up' on this book to know how their lives continued afterwards.

What a life story it's good that it has been told and made public knowledge both in book and tv form, the world needs to be more aware of these things.

This is an amazing, inspirational and heart-wrenching true story. I was moved to tears several times when reading it. The extent of the torture and heartache that Muna and her family experienced is horrifying and many would be lost for words, yet the author conveys it with crystal clear - and often graphic - description and the intensity of the emotions she experienced shine through her writing. I highly recommend this book.

I dont usually write a review (although I should because I rely on them!). Felt I had to with this book, as it is possibly the best book I have read in a long time. I could not believe what this poor girl and her sisters went through. To think it still goes on is so upsetting. I would love to know what has happened to them all since.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best things I have ever read 24 Feb. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a MUST READ. It is absolutely gripping. One of the best things I have ever read. Considering her formal education ended at the age of 13 this book is absolutely awesome - the author's (and this is no ghost-written book) story-telling skills are up there with the best of them. Gaby's life has been unbelievable. This book makes you feel as if you are there with her every horrifying step of the way. She paints vivid pictures of her early life in Newport in the 70's; the remote Yemeni village she and her sisters were then taken to in their teens; from the descriptions of how bread is baked in clay ovens, to how water is collected from the well. The full horrors of the reality of forced marriage are laid bare alongside the savage violence inflicted on her by those who should have loved and cared for her. The fact this woman is still alive is a miracle. Her story could be the most important book you ever read. Pick it up and you won't be able to put it down.
