In the begining I was a little judgmental toward Jacky's decisions. She married someone she hardly knows, left behind everything familiar to her, and went to live in a culture she knew nothing about. After a while though I began to understand why she had agreed to marry him. I could understand her not wanting to live her life asking, "what if"?
This is a really good book that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat with your eyes flying across the page to see how Jacky will overcome all the obstacles and make it out of Egypt with both of her daughters.
A timely warning to all women who would visit Muslim countries and enter into relationships with the men there. Uncovers the sheer horror of Islamic treatment, of women. The fate suffered by white western women and girls is particularly horrific as white women are seen as particularly worthless. Now these things are happening in Britain and Europe to working class women and girls (some mere children) who would never have even had the resopurces to exotic destinations but are subjected to this in their own towns

I certainly feel for Jacky and her awful experience at the hands of her husband, and admire her courage for putting her life at risk to save her daughters. I can't put my finger on what exactly it was but something just didn't sit right with me. A pleasant enough book to read (not taking into account the subject matter of course!) but not one I'd recommend to a friend. Sorry!
