Without Mercy ~ Miriam Ali

Sinopsis:
Miriam Ali’s nightmare began on the day in 1980 when she learnt that her two teenage daughters had been sold to ‘husbands’ in Yemen by their father, and would not be coming home to Birmingham. But it was also the turning point. After too many years of submission, when she had been used as little more than a baby-machine and had suffered two nervous breakdowns, Miriam finally mustered the courage  to begin a campaign to rescue Zana and Nadia from the misery and squalor in which they were forced to live.

Without Mercy is the astonishing true story of that struggle. An essential companion to Zana’s own story, Sold, Miriam’s account shows all the beauty and ferocity of a mother’s instinct in a searing and anguished battle against an abusive man, an outmoded tradition and an ineffective indifferent bureaucracy.

  1. It is refreshing to read different Blogs to get a new perspective from different sources. No matter how much I read it never ceases to amaze me how many people have different ways of optimizing their sites that are effective yet vary from the main stream of typical SEO methods. The reason I feel these websites do so well is not because of optimization but the genuine use of new, fresh,well written content. I wish you all the best and keep up the good work. Thank you allowing me the the privilege of reading your blog.
