Like a harrowing Thousand and One Arabian Nights, Prisoner of Tehran is the story of Marina Nemat - her unvarnished courage, her intrepid wisdom, her fight to save her integrity and her family in a world in which to be female is to be chattel. Written with the deft hands of a novelist, it is the portrait of a world only too real, where women's lives are cheap - but not this one (Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of THE DEEP END OF THE OCEAN and CAGE OF STARS)
'Prisoner of Tehran is a harrowing journey, an account of growth under the darkest of circumstances and a trial of faith in the face of overwhelming horror. It is skillfully constructed, with a keen sense of suspense' (Robert J. Wiersema, author of BEFORE I AWAKE)
'Prisoner of Tehran is an extraordinary story of survival and how one woman finally found inner peace through the written word' (Entertainment Weekly)

It is a shame that such a rich culture, tapestry and traditions is kept hidden under the pretence of protecting Islam. As Marina writes God does not need our protection! I am humbled by Marina's faith, humility and her utter goodness. May you continue to be a blessing to all.
