First I want to start by saying that if your going to read this you should read FATWA first because the first few chapters are about what Jacky did after escaping her abusive Egyptian husband. I was so glad that she wrote about what her life was like once she escaped! When most people/authors write a book updating their lives from where they left off in their first memoir they usually write way to much of what was in the first book, but not Jacky! I was so relieved that I got the update without having to read the same thing twice!
After many women read FATWA they contacted Jacky and told her their own horror stories and this book is the result. In INVIVISIBLE WOMEN Jacky shares eight of the stories told to her by different women and each one pulls you right in and has you hoping for the best outcome!
In this book you will read about honor killings, cheating spouses, forced marriages, abusive husbands, arranged marriages, eating disorders, and the list goes on.
This book has left a deep impression on me and when I pass other women in public places now I will wonder what's their story and hope with all my heart that the story they would have to tell would be a happy one.
