Attractive, 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 of a man. 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 nation to enter into the 20th century. Instead, she ended up a virtual slave in a nation where a woman constantly experiences fear and degradation. 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.

I really liked this book, however the first half was a little hard to get into. Then it got much better. The lives these women have to live when they marry these men is truly terrible. Especially having been educated at Oxford and living in England for several years. Very informative about this society.
