Editorial Reviews

Review

"Reads like a waking nightmare in places and reminded me very much of Sylvia Plath's poem Purdah - - a woman raging and hurting because she has been trapped by others into their shadow, never allowed to breathe and just be herself. Her autobiography is going to stay with me, I'm sure."
-- G.R. Yeates, author of Dawn Fades

"Amazing and inspiring story of a lovely woman who was able to triumph over adversity. In spite of the odds and even her own family turned against her Luky (pronounced Lucky) fought back for what she thought was rightfully hers. Her freedom."
-- L.A. Jones, author of Tales of Aradia The Last Witch

From the Author

"I hate my life! I hate this culture. I can't go anywhere. Or do any damn thing. I hate it so freaking much!!"
 -- L.A. Sherman, when talking to her mother as a teen. 
 
"Almost every Bengali girl must have said this - - I'm one of them! L.A. really gave a true insight into a Bengali girl's life - - amazing xXx"
 -- Shuhena Mikail Begum, a Bengali-Muslim girl in Sweden
