Paperbackpages. Souad did not always know of the events she recounts. It’s a miracle that she survived the burning, despite the horrors that ensued, because the job wasn’t and isn’t done yet. And we have studied a lot about these communities. I also do not believe it has anything to do with religion as much as cultures. The modesty idea is taken to the extreme; women must work, work, euad, work, work! The childhood was horrible, the burning was unthinkable, the collusion to finalize the act by both family and community boggles the mind, and the psychological effects continue to dog her.

Culture is culture, traditions are traditions.
So heart-wrenching, so tear-worthy, with a realistic view on a the life of dear Souad, who only wanted to be loved more than anything in the world.

So, well, this book is not for the weak-hearted. She was duped and this piece of filth then disappeared on hearing she was pregnant, leaving her to that terrible fate.
Bruciataa been seeing reviews that this book is apparently not a real memoir. I feel differently after reading a lot of other reviews and sadly came to the conclusion that perhaps this is not true.
Education is imperative to changing things like this. I am relieved to say that, as a twelve year old, I took so much away from this book; politics, the corruption usad some families, and the lives that are looked down upon so fiercely.
