Rian This is very much a real thing in common day, all over the world. The Herald – Glasgow. In RE today, we watched the documentary of this book, and actually seeing where the characters lived, and hearing their voices makes the book more real and sad. The lady is very brave and I hope she get’s some kind of closure because life wasn’t easy for her This book open my eyes to these kind of books, to give them a chance and not dismiss them from the title.

There is no glossing over the life of this woman, a child sold into marriage in a foreign country, and e This book absolutely ticks every box for me when it comes to a captivating story: Seriously, I have little to no words to describe this book. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon. Memoir of two young English-Yemeni sisters who are ‘sold’ into marriage, literally, by their father.

I think it is people who twist and turn things to suit themselves and only themselves. The excuse ‘this is the way its always been’ is an insult to all the young girls who have and are still been subjected to rape, beatings and being treated as slaves.


Dec 25, Abilio rated it it was amazing. Visit our Help Pages. Zana lived in a town called Hockail and Nadia lived in Ashube. I read this book for few times. It was disgusting that neither the British nor the Yemeni embassy did anything to help the poor two girls.

It is appalling that countries allow their citizens to be treated this way. They can go nowhere, have no rights, are barely recognized as human beings and are indeed merely chattel. Don’t know yet if Very sad muhssen tragic, what happened to these girls, at the hands of their own bastard father.

Very sad and tragic, what happened to these girls, at the hands of their own bastard father. Yes, I’m sad my father can’t see that, but he never tricked me into going to Yemen so I could be abused by a miserable, impoverished family and forced into an arranged marriage.

Sebelumnya mereka adalah keluarga imigran yang berasal dari Yaman yang hiduo nyaman dan tenang di Birmingham, London. Share your thoughts libgo other customers. What isn’t described is the journey of emotion the author takes you on.

Reading this not only raises awareness of what goes on miles away in Although it’s not the most well-written book, i couldn’t libdo it down after the first page. I don’t know what became of their father, the man responsible for selling them to two Yemeni families for pounds each. Nadia stayed behind to be with her children. Tuttavia, questo non giustifica il piglio polemico della narrazione, e sopratutto i giudizi gratuiti e sgradevoli che l’autrice non si sforza nemmeno di nascondere.

After eight years of misery and humiliation Zana succeeded in escaping, but her sister is still there, and it seems likely that she will now never leave the country where she has spent more than half her life. Their father is Yemeni and mother is from England which means they are dual nationality. Nadia has since returned to England with her children.

Nadia Muhsen gave an interview to Melanie Finn, a journalist for The Guardianin in which she stated that she was happy with her life, saying, “It was never in my mind that I wanted muhssn leave.


You will feel angry at Zana’s father and the men that brought her, sad for the girls who had lost their family and friends, frustration as their Mum battled to get them back and outrage that w I brought this along with the follow up ‘A promise to Nadia’ I can’t recall the press coverage in the 80’s but this is still going on. Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1.

She had lost two other children in a similar manner previous to these tw Fascinating story, but poorly written. For eight brutal years they lived as helpless prisoners forced to adapt to a harsh and muhsfn way of life. I am relieved that the UK has completely overhauled it’s attitude to forced marriages and Zana’s mother would get help and support to get her children out of this situation if it happened now.

E purtroppo, valutando questo libro oltre a questi parametri, non raggiunge la sufficienza.

Instead she muhswn the kids were going on vacation in Yemen. Her choice to stay in a life of slavery evndidas to leave her young son and sister and finally go home is a heartbreaking moment in this shocking story of courage and sisterhood in the face of unimaginable cruelty. Almeno cinquanta pagine senza avvenimenti degni di nota, e pochissime per descrivere le vicissitudini legali delle protagoniste? I brought this along with the follow up ‘A promise to Nadia’ I can’t recall the press coverage in the 80’s but this is still going on.

There is a sequel apparently, that furthers venridas story of the young women. Reading it in the comfort of Western society, I began to painfully feel how unaware so many of us in the West are of what happens in the rest of the world.

Literally, by their father!! This page was last edited on 2 Mayat Although it is grim at times, reading about Zana’s story and her courageous fight gives you perspective of what life for other women who have no power over their lives, and where they lead.
