A Promise To Nadia by Zana Muhsen

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 Nadias two small children. As she described so powerfully in her book Sold, Zana made a solemn vow to Nadia that she would do everything she possibly could obtain their freedom as well. This book tells the story of those ten years; of the familys 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 organization specializing in the recovery of abducted children.

Thats what I thought, you also need to get your facts right bab! Have a good day people. Could Nadia with her children leave Jemen? How is Marcus doing, are he and Zana reunited?

Thank you so much for devoting this much space on your blog to Zana's story. I have to agree with you that "Promise to Nadia" is rather a re-telling of the same story. It was commissioned by the publishers because of the enormous demand from readers of "Sold" to find out more about what happened to the girls after the end of the book. So many people have been so kind in their comments about this story over the years and we have sold well over five million copies now. So, thank you again for adding your voice.

Back in Birmingham, Zana and Nadia's mother, Miriam Ali, soon realised that her daughters were not coming home.

Zana Muhsen survived rape and marital slavery in Yemen. Now she must fight to save her sister, says Mary O'Sullivan. IN , when Zana Muhsen was 16, she was an ordinary Birmingham girl who loved her father. It was a massive shock, says Zana, as the truth of their desperate situation emerged and as they realised the betrayal was on their father's part. Zana has had 13 years back in Birmingham to come to terms with her experience in the Yemen, but she explains that the torture is not over yet and will not end until Nadia, too, is free. It has been four years since she has spoken to Nadia, and just less than that since any family member has seen her. Zana knows second-hand that Nadia, weakened by six difficult, unassisted childbirths, walks with a limp and that her teeth are rotten in her head.
