This is a fascinating story. (SOUTH WALES ECHO)

Unlike her sister, Zana managed to escape, and this is her account of eight years of misery and humiliation.See all Product description

I even googled the author after reading the book - her sister didn't get a chance to escape from her enforced marriage yet. Se has several children with a husband who abuses her. Really shocking, sad story. Loved the book which was easy to read. Perfect for holiday reading.
Islamic women may have more rights in the West but all over the world their Islamic sisters are suffering greatly under the guise of religion. If the rest of the world is to understand this religion and give it the respect it probably deserves then women who have a voice must speak up.
For the reviewer that said the veil is what God wants Islamic women to do, I wholeheartedly disagree. That message came from the prophet ( a human being born of a woman) NOT GOD. He told women to protect their honour by covering their modesty from men's prying eyes, hence why so many woman cover themselves. I for one can never understand why a man can't respect a woman without a veil by turning his head the other way. Would this not be a true test of a man ?
My heart goes out to the two sisters and their ordeal, especially Nadia's.
The story itself deserves the 5 stars, Zana's courage deserves 5 stars and Nadia's courage and love for her children too but had their story been better written, it would have an even bigger impact on people.
This is will not prevent me to buy the sequels ''without mercy'' and ''a promise to Nadia'' though..
