She was trapped behind the veil of hell. Educated in Oxford and a respected journalist, Cherry Mosteshar seemed the last woman likely to become a terrified Islamic bride; beaten if a wisp of hair showed from beneath her head scarf, forbidden from leaving the country without her husband's permission, and legally worth half a man. A nightmare world of violence and degradation. But Cherry wanted to return to the homeland she knew as a child. Filled with ideals and longings, she hoped to help the fundamentalist-ruled national to enter the twentieth century. Instead, she ended up a virtual slave in a nation where a woman constantly experiences fear and degradation. Now her true story can finally be told. This is Cherry's true story--from her arrival into a monstrous marriage where she became just one of her husband's wives, to her harrowing years as a victim of his sexual whims and his violent outbursts, to her heroic struggle to maintain her identity while a prisoner stripped of all rights and dignity, to her plight as a terrified victim ready to do anything to save her own life and escape...

Hardback, good condition, some wear on jacket as seen in photos.
