Let’s Start a Boo I have shared this story with many and I was wondering why it was not sold in the U. I think it is of the utmost importance to get this information released in the U.

I just can’t imagine, modern British girls being sold to Arab men and to lead life of peasants among the deserts and mountains of Yemen, with no kibro facilities, and forced to be the slaves of their in-laws! Zana Muhsen, born and bred in Birmingham, is of Yemeni origin.


Sold by Zana Muhsen. Fascinating story, but poorly written. The media got involved and her mother was a big help for her to get out However, Zana returned back to England but Nadia stayed back because they won’t allow her and she didn’t want to get back without her children. Inan Observer journalistEileen McDonald, visited the girls ,uhsen wrote a series of articles portraying the Muhsens as cruelly-treated slaves.

Only with the help of their mother and a lot of puplicity Zana was able to leave the Yemen. In their father sold them for another Yemeni men Zana for Abdullah and Nadia for Mohammed They are sold as wives for them. Her choice to stay in a life of slavery evndidas to leave her young son and sister and finally go home is a heartbreaking moment in this shocking story of courage and sisterhood in the face of unimaginable cruelty.

East Dane Designer Men’s Fashion. Write a customer review. So I got that goin’ for me You will feel angry at Zana’s father and the men that brought her, sad for the girls who had lost their family and friends, frustration as their Mum battled to get them back and outrage that w I brought this along with the follow up ‘A promise to Nadia’ I can’t recall the press coverage in the 80’s but this is still going on.

In the books and in interviews, Muhsen states that she and her sister had been sent to Yemen under the assumption that they were going on holiday to meet the paternal side of their family. What a foul, despicable hideous person. They are cast into the tiny rural mountainous village where they are ruled by their husbands and male relatives and live as slaves.

Showing of 21 reviews. Living in the contemporary Middle East, it was hard to imagine that this happens but in small towns and underdeveloped countries, undoubtedly it does. Young girls are ‘sold’ by their family and taken out of the country my first question was ‘whats going on with the school system why didn’t anyone ask where the girls where?

I would however thoroughly recommend this book, as it is a shocking story about modern day slavery that shockingly still exists in this day and age. Feb 18, Please Pass the Books rated it it was amazing. I read this book about four years ago. I hope this is just the fiction, not the real story?

I wasn’t able to imagne that the father sold his own kids to a foreign country and married them to strangers without asking them. A Promise to Nadia haven’t read it yet is said to detail the saga of getting the sister, Nadia, out of Yemen.

The zzana you read the more frustrated you become with the these girls father who would do such a thing and the men who bought these young girls for their sons. Seriously, I have little to no words to describe this book.

This happened I usually find autobiographies or books that are telling a real life event kind of boring, and I normally find myself skipping some pages. My heart went out to the author as she retold her situation and her fathers unwillingness to accept his upbringing of daughters in a western world.

Raised in England, they have reached teenage-hood with all its challenges and rebellious behaviors. If kibro are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? What is really shameful is how Yemen allows this to happen and turns their back on the children this is happening to.


Islam is one of the world’s most glorious, beautiful religions. At the very least, where England was aware of the problem they should not have been allowing children under the age of 18 to travel to Yemen. Toward the end of the book, when Zana is about to get a divorce from the man she was forced to marry, her father called, begging her not to leave Yemen.

They can go nowhere, have no rights, are barely recognized as human beings and are indeed merely chattel. However, Zana’s thrilling and devastating experience had my eyes wide opened and I kept muhseb firm grip with this group. Race, Gender, and Memories of Empire”.
