did not like it

When I first read this book years ago, I was drawn totally into the story. I feel differently after reading a lot of other reviews and sadly came to the conclusion that perhaps this is not true. IF Souad exists, I wish she could come out and hold a press conference. Sometimes that is not possible, but I wish that she could do this.

However, I remind myself that whether Souad does or does not exist, such things do happen frequently to women in the world, and we can't let any disappointment in a book stop us from trying to save women from such brutalities.

Jean Sasson I'm always left aghast to read about mankind's inhumanity to each other. I feel bad if I accidentally hurt someone's feelings -- how others can inflict such pain makes me think that they are a different species from the rest of us....

✟Sabrina Rutter✟ I believe her story to be true. I think when it came to changing some facts to protect her identity things got thrown off course a bit. I actually read a story about the telephone cord incident that took place in this boook. I have unfortunately been unable to find that site again, but I feel very much so that they were talking about Souads family. It even gave their real names in the report. If only I could find it again that alone might be proof enough. I think she may have suffered with some brain damag from infections that set in from her poor care. I think this is why her memory is spotty, and she was unable to care for her son.

Jean Sasson You may have hit on something... I don't know for sure, but always like to believe a person until it is proven otherwise. Thanks for reminding us of this.
