From Library Journal:

As a female journalist living in Kuwait and writing for a Kuwaiti newspaper, Porter dramatically puts into words the thoughts that many who were caught up in the ordeal could not express. Through the eyes of this daring woman who refused to leave Kuwait after the Iraqi invasion and who aided the resistance, we get a firsthand account of life in a country devastated by war. Porter, who smuggled out reports of Iraqi brutality for seven and a half months, depicts the worries and fears of several expatriate families living in hiding. Readers will sense the courage required to survive under the occupation and will ride the roller coaster of expectations and disappointments along with the main characters. Recommended for general collections.
