the book says that the story is true, but it reads like made-up erotica...but maybe not. The teller of the story swings from anger to desperation, from threats to pleas.
A lot of it sounds as if it cannot be. The parts before she comes to American...maybe. There are many reports that come out of Arab parts of the world that make this story ring true.
The part where she is here? I hope these things cannot happen, but I know that they do.
The book is not well written, the writing is shallow and the characters unreal. There is a second book, but I most likely will not read it.
