I give this ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
There are not many books I can say I’ve read in less than 40 hours, but this is one of them. It was so intense, I was captivated from start to finish.
This is a story of a young Palestinian women who was brought up in the West Bank. She describes the most awful treatment she received growing up, including being a slave for her family from a very young age. Souad then goes onto tell the punishment she was
given for falling in love and how she is still alive today.
I never really read nonfiction not because I don’t enjoy it just because I wouldn’t know where to start. So, when I was given this true story to read I moved it to the top of my TBR pile. I can honestly say it’s the most powerful, moving, emotional book I have ever read. I was left feeling all kinds of emotions, sad, angry, shocked and heartbroken.
This is a book that will stick with me forever and keep me going over and over of how Souad suffered and the unfairness of it.
To know honour killings goes on in our world has deeply saddened and shocked me. Thank you for letting me open my eyes and heart to something I knew little about.
I’m glad Souad has been able to tell her story, as painful as it must have been. What a courageous, brave, strong women.
Not to forget what an amazing and remarkable women Jacqueline is.
