9780310318194: The Imam's Daughter: My Desperate Flight to Freedom

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 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.

From the Back Cover:

Hannah Shah is an Imam's daughter. She lived the life of a devout family of 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 ran away. Hunted by her angry father and brothers, who were intent on making her an honor killing, she had to keep moving house to escape them, and complete her education.

Worst of all, from her family's point of view, she converted to Christianity and eventually found freedom--to live (and marry) as she wished, and to be free of the shame of her childhood.

Offering a remarkable look at the lifestyle and beliefs of her family, and the rigid ideas of shame and honor they used to oppress her, The Imam's Daughter also shines a light on contemporary Western culture. Most of all, though, this is the inspiring story of Hannah Shah herself. How, through her courage and tenacity, she broke free from her background and embraced a new life in the world beyond its confines.

About the Author:

Hannah Shah is a thirty-two-year-old British woman of Pakistani Muslim parentage. After she left her home in the north of England and finished her schooling, she earned a degree in Theology and Religious Studies. She now lives in the south of England, where she is increasingly in demand for speaking engagements to support others facing similar situations. She married for love in the spring of 2008.
