a Promised to NADIA
Author : Zana Muhsen and Andrew Crofts
ISBN No. : 9780751530551
Ten years ago, Zana Muhsen escaped from her 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. She recounted her harrowing story in SOLD, an instant international bestseller.
Zana made a promise to Nadia not to rest until her sister and the children had also obtained their freedom. But her hopes soon turned into a new nightmare, one where international interest led to the attraction of sharks and con men. The fighting fund created by her book disappeared, but Zana refused to give up her struggle for Nadia and the children.
A promise to Nadia is the answer to the many thousands of letters which Zana has received from readers of SOLD who, unbearably moved by her tale of courage and determination, have all been asking what happened next.
