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.
