Publisher's Summary

Hannah Shah is an Imam's daughter. She lived the life of a devout Muslim in a family of Pakistani Muslims in England, but behind the front door, she was a caged butterfly. For many years, her father abused her in the cellar of their home. At 16, she discovered a plan to send her to Pakistan for an arranged marriage, and she gathered the courage to run away. Relentlessly hunted by her angry father and brothers, who were intent on executing an "honor" killing, she moved from house to house in perpetual fear to escape them. Over time, she converted to Christianity and was able to live and marry as she wished.
Hannah found the courage to live her life free from shame, free from religious intolerance, and free from the abuse that haunted her childhood. This is a remarkable true story of how a young girl escaped a life of torture - a story you won't forget.

I was almost put off purchasing this book due to the previous reviews stating only half the book is available, I can confirm that June 2017 the full book is contained in this purchase. It was a word of mouth recommendation otherwise I wouldn't have purchased. Enlightening true story of a British Muslim girl's escape from a life of abuse and conversation to Christianity in her teens. Thank you for writing this.
