Summary
For 15-year-old Zana Muhsen and her younger sister Nadia, born and raised in Birmingham, a six-week holiday with relatives in North Yemen sounded like the trip of a lifetime. It turned into a living nightmare. On their arrival, Zana and her sister discovered that their father had literally sold them into marriage and that they were helpless prisoners. The girls had to adapt to a completely alien way of life, living in primitive stone houses with dung-plastered walls and no running water. They suffered rape, frequent beatings and the terrifying ordeal of childbirth on bare mud floors with only old women in attendance. After eight years of misery and humiliation, Zana escaped, and her story is as shocking as it is heart-rending
