Publisher's Description

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 sixteen, 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 live 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.

    Tremendous Book ... Hard To Put Down

    This review was written for The Imam's Daughter.
    "The Imam's Daughter", by Hannah Shah. The book is an autobiography that tells the story of the early life of the daughter of an "Imam", a religious leader of Islam. She presents her own life, from childhood to early adulthood.

    Within the first half of the book, she shares the abuses she received from her father as well as those endured by other immediate family members. She also shares about the hardships that exist for women and their role within an Islamic society, even a small one. She addresses the issue of prearranged marriages for young ladies; with seldom positive outcomes.

    The second half of the book focused a little more in her conversion from Islam to Christianity. She shares how the living testimony of love from friends and people who helped her drew her to desire to learn more about Christianity and Christ Jesus. She shares how the decision to accept Him as her Lord and Savior led for her increase in danger from her family, which threatened her life. She also went on to share the victories that God gave her and the woman He helped her to develop into ... and to help others who have been or are experiencing similar life circumstances as hers.

    I recommend this book, I found it very educational, but also hard to put down. I've already bought two other copies to give away to friends.

    This review was written for The Imam's Daughter.
    Reading this true story (which takes place in England) gives the reader an idea how abuse of a family member can go on for years, and some of its consequences. One also gets a taste of the horror of arranged marriages when the parents do not have the best interests of their daughter at heart. It also touches on the abuse of Islamic terrorists on Islamic followers to make more terrorists, and gives first hand accounts of persecution of a Christian. She does not give any graphic details, but it is still a sobering read illustrating sin. I'm happy for her new faith and the healing she has experienced.

    It is an eye opener and everybody should read this.

    This review was written for The Imam's Daughter.
    We take for granted the freedom that is denied to so many even in a free society such as Great Britain. She is a woman of great courage to have escaped the constraints of her ethnic and religious background and to continue to fight for the rights of others. This is a good and quick read. Worth taking the time; but as always, we need to remember that not all children of Islam are treated this way. We are so caught in our fear of the radicals it is hard to keep an open mind and not judge all by the severe traditionalists

    A really good book. It is so sad to think that it goes on all the time in families today and nothing gets done by people in

    Authority to support these women.
