From Library Journal
Those who empathized with Mahmoody's thrilling account of her harrowing escape from Iran, where her marriage deprived her of the protection of U.S. law ( Not Without My Daughter , LJ 11/1/87), will want to read this sequel. After returning to the United States, Mahmoody found that her experience was far from unique--that a multitude of foreign spouses have spirited away their children and virtually held them prisoner. Her new book is a compilation of such cases. Most are not as lucky as Mahmoody, and she devotes much time informing people about international parental abductions and the lack of laws to cover them. Although some international conventions have been signed, they lack adequate means of enforcement, and the right of children to remain in the place they call home is not always respected. Congress has yet to act at all. An excellent purchase for public libraries. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 5/15/92.- Louise Leonard, Univ. of Florida Libs., Gainesville
