Ten years ago Zana Muhsen escaped from the life of slavery in the Yemen into which her father had sold her as a child bride, leaving behind her baby son, her sister Nadia, and Nadia's two small children.

A PROMISE TO NADIA will tell the extraordinary story of those ten years; of the family's lone campaign against the Yemeni authorities; of the refusal of their own government in London to help; and of the despair that forced them into a desperate deal with an unofficial military-style organisation specialising in the recovery of abducted children.… (more)

The story of Zana and Nadia continues and is equally as shocking as the first book. Zana is now safe at home in the UK and campaigning in the media for the release of her sister who is still in Yemen with her children. Attempts to meet Nadia are thwarted and she is being forced to say that she wants to stay when it is clear that she wants to come home. Even sections of the media seem to think that Zana should just forget her campaign.
It shocked me that this saga was still going on with no prospect of Nadia's release, and Zana seemed to be facing new obstacles everywhere she turned. It made me angry that our government seemed completely helpless! ( )
