A Promise to Nadia: A True Story of a British Slave in the Yemen
The heart-breaking follow-up to Zana Muhsen's shocking first exposal of the Yemeni sex trade in Sold?now, Zana's heading back into the snake put to save her sister
Ten years ago Zana Muhsen escaped from the life of slavery in Yemen into which her father had sold her as a child bride, leaving behind her baby son, her sister Nadia, and Nadia's two small children. As she described so powerfully in her book Sold, Zana made a solemn vow to Nadia that she would do everything she possibly could obtain their freedom as well. This book tells the extraordinary story of those 10 years, of the family's lone campaign against the Yemeni authorities, of the refusal of their own government in London to help, and of the despair that forced them into a desperate deal with an unofficial military-style organization specializing in the recovery of abducted children.
