Heartbreaking and frustrating to learn about the struggles of Saudi women, but an incredible story of courage. It is difficult as a Westerner to even fathom that there are women in THIS CURRENT TIME whose lives are so completely different from our own. Also a cautionary tale of how easily groups of people can be deprived of their human rights in the name of religion, culture, fear.... I found this book very moving and inspiring. The narrator does an amazing job. I will be celebrating June 24, 2018!!!!
