Publisher's Summary

Hannah Shah is an Imam's daughter. She lived the life of a devout Muslim in a family of Pakistani Muslims in England, but behind the front door, she was a caged butterfly. For many years, her father abused her in the cellar of their home. At 16, she discovered a plan to send her to Pakistan for an arranged marriage, and she gathered the courage to run away. Relentlessly hunted by her angry father and brothers, who were intent on executing an "honor" killing, she moved from house to house in perpetual fear to escape them. Over time, she converted to Christianity and was able to live and marry as she wished.

Hannah found the courage to live her life free from shame, free from religious intolerance, and free from the abuse that haunted her childhood. This is a remarkable true story of how a young girl escaped a life of torture - a story you won't forget.

It was good until it just quit all of the sudden!

WHERE IS THE REST OF THIS BOOK? How can you only give us part of the book? I hope that this situation will be remedied soon. Surely the story doesn't end where this audiobook does!

You must ask youraseld as a woman

With Islam all over the media, why are there not more audiobooks on this subject?

This book was horrifying, heartbreaking and should be read by us all.

Hard to listen to.

The pain of Hannah's childhood was hard to listen to, but her story is an important one to understand. Well told.

Credit to the author

This got a full rating because the author has told us her story in amazing detail. I only hope the author continues to thrive in her new life. Don't want to say to much and give anything away, but the journey that this author goes through to get the life she is entitled to, also takes us the listener on the journey with her.
Anger, sadness, and happiness are just some of the feelings I suspect you will experience from this book. There are some distressing parts though, just to give you the heads up.

Full book container

I was almost put off purchasing this book due to the previous reviews stating only half the book is available, I can confirm that June 2017 the full book is contained in this purchase. It was a word of mouth recommendation otherwise I wouldn't have purchased. Enlightening true story of a British Muslim girl's escape from a life of abuse and conversation to Christianity in her teens. Thank you for writing this.
