Shocking, scary, and inspirational. I had to keep reminding myself that this really happened. Excellent book.
An amazing true story - one of the most inspirational books I've ever read. I couldn't put it down.
This book is a warning to American women that should be taken seriously. We get caught up in our own lives, and don't really know what other cultures are like, good and bad. This is a story of a woman who wanted her marriage to work, and was trying to do everything to make that happen, but it went to far. Women should never EVER go to a country where her husband has ultimate say over her and her children. Once you are out of the safety of your own territory, your rights change depending on where you are, and in this case, she had no rights. This is a wonderful, heart-wrenching, true account, and a great eye opener. This book opened my interest into the Middle East. Another author that you may enjoy if you like this is Jean Sasson who's newest book is called "Love in a Torn Land".
The most amazing and inspirational book I've ever read. You feel like you are literally with Betty and her daughter in Iran and feel her despair, frustration and joy as she plots to escape her abusive husband. You won't be able to put it down
