Sold by Zana Muhsen

Memoir of two young English-Yemeni sisters who are ‘sold’ into marriage. Andrew Crofts must be commended for his superb communication of Zana’s story. One of the girls manages to escape, leaving behind her young child and her sister who could not bear to abandon her own child.

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 women can still be treated like chattel.

When our teacher told us to read this book one week ago I thought oh god, another boring book. Delivery and Returns see our delivery rates and policies thinking of returning an item? I do not think Islam is the problem. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? It’s not the most well-written piece in the world, but I’ll cut her some slack for being ripped from her native country of England at the young age of 16 and forced to speak another language for 8 years while she was beaten, raped, enslaved, and lied to, and as an added bonus, she got to watch her younger sister go through the same shit in vemdidas next town over.



I’m happy already, and thankful every day for my comfortable home, stable job, unique side lihro, and fun activities. The story starts off very innocent but gets extremely serious the moment that two girls are in mjhsen Yemen. This autobiography told zama Zana, one of two young teenage sisters from Birmingham, whose father told them he was taking them abroad for a holiday, but instead sold them into marriage and slavery to boys they had never met and who lived in the Yemeni mountains.

It was disgusting that neither the British nor the Yemeni embassy did anything to help the poor two girls. Please read the sequel to this book “Promise to Nadia”. Every day they walked over rocky terrain to draw water from a well; they were battered and rape Probably one of the most harrowing and compelling reads! Race, Gender, and Memories of Empire”. At the beginning of my journey through this book, this was what I expected.

I have shared this story with many and I was wondering why it was not sold in the U.

Their mother, Miriam Ali, an English woman, appealed vendidws to the Foreign Office for assistance, but was told that the Yemeni government had stated that as they were now married to Yemeni men, they could only leave the country with their husbands’ permission.

Dec 25, Abilio rated it it was amazing. Salah satunya adalah Zana Muhsen dan adiknya Nadia Muhsen. Seriously, I have little to no words to describe this book. Zana, her mother and many people all over the world are fighting, 20 years on to have Nadia and her six children returned to England where they originally came from.

This happened when Zana was only 15 mhusen her sister was one year younger.

Every day they walked over rocky terrain to draw water from a well; they were battered and raped and gave birth virtually on their own. May 29, PlatKat rated it it was amazing. It also makes me wonder with all the foolish sexual harrassment cases that go on the the United States why some of these extreme feminists don’t go help the real victims of these crimes.

One whom I personally would love to see drawn and quartered in a public square, just like they do to evil-doers in his neck of the woods! I agree with Carla that it vendidaa not Islam that is the problem. I could validate that choice, and the opposite choice made by her sister. View all 4 comments.

It is a grim tale of male rule in the Middle East and in the Islamic culture as we know of it.
