This is the story of how one Asian woman cut her ties with abusive tradition and became a voice for those afraid to use their own.

The author describes her life from the age of 15 when forced to run away from home to escape a forced marriage and is then considered 'dead' by her family, at least until middle-age when her sisters tend to pop up when they need favours, such as housing with Jasvinda their own arranged/forced and often abusive marriages have failed.
It is extremely well written throughout, an honest story which is quite shocking but gives a real insight into traditional 1950's values brought to the UK and the apparent shame inflicted on a family trapped in these values when cultures clash.
