Forget You Had a Daughter
Following two years of living abroad in Thailand, Sandra Gregory suddenly became desperately ill and as her medical bills began to mount, her bank account dwindled. In exchange for $2,000 she agreed to carry 89 grams of heroin to Tokyo for a friend, but before she even boarded the plane she was caught by Bangkok Airport security and ultimately sentenced to 25 years inside...more
Being a young, British woman who visits Thailand often, it hits very close to home. Sandra Gregory is a very inspirational woman, who was punished far too harshly...more
Unfortunately she gets nabbed and gets a 25 year sentence in prison.
The woes and misery she experiences and the friends she makes while in prison make for a fairly interesting story.
She eventually gets a pardon from the king and is sent to prison in Britain which according to her was way more horrific than anything she had experienced in Bangkok!
Interesting reading .
Ms. Gregory paints a picture of her time in a Bangkok prison that makes me thankful for every minute of my freedom. She admits her crime, and tells her story without feeling sorry for herself. I think every person that travels abroad needs to read this book.
Why does women have to have so hard but why not men?
Anyway a book about a young woman spending a long time in prison and the consequence with it.
I liked it. A true story thats awful but thats how our world is.
Open & honest about what happened and what she endured. A great read.
