Two decades ago, millions of readers worldwide thrilled to the story told in the international bestseller Not Without My Daughter—subsequently made into a film starring Sally Field—that told of an American mother and her six-year-old child’s daring escape from an abusive and tyrannical Iranian husband and father. Now the daughter returns to tell the whole story, not only of that imprisonment and escape but of life after fleeing Tehran: living in fear of re-abduction, enduring recurring nightmares and panic attacks, attending school under a false name, battling life-threatening illness—all under the menacing shadow of her father.
This is the story of an extraordinary young woman’s triumph over life-crushing trauma to build a life of peace and forgiveness. Taking readers from Michigan to Iran and from Ankara, Turkey, to Paris, France, My Name Is Mahtob depicts the profound resilience of a wounded soul healed by faith in God’s goodness and in his care and love. And Mahmoody reveals the secret of how she liberated herself from a life of fear, learning to forgive the father who had shattered her life and discovering joy and peace that comes from doing so.
- Not a Christian book.
I was enjoying this book.
Then toward the end of the book there were cuss words. They used God's name in vain twice!!
I had no way of knowing, or I definitely would not have bought this book
- Nice follow up to "Not Without My Daughter "
Overall interesting. Nice to get reunited with Mahtob through her own book.
- Upbeat and interesting
I really enjoyed this book, and getting the rest of the story. I'm inspired by the author's spiritual maturity in dealing with such difficult events and emotional turmoil. I could hardly put it down, I so badly wanted to know what comes next. Now I am sad to have finished the book. It's a good read for the story and for the inspiration.
