A powerful read is a huge understatement, this book fills you with hope and Zeba is such an inspiration to every generation, women and men. More books like this are needed , I can’t emphasise this enough. Thank you so much for sharing your story Zeba. I hope it inspires so many people as much as it did me.


Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for a free copy for an honest opinion
