The true story of an American woman -Betty Mahmoody who struggles for her child and win freedom for them.
It is a story about an young lady who goes to Iran with her husband(Dr.Sayyed Bozorg Mahmoody) and daughter(Mahtob-four year old) to meet her hubby's family. they starts to Iran on August 3, 1984.
Iran is a place where there is hatred towards American's and a place where woman are suppressed with rules and regulations on their dressing etc.
Betty soon gets desperate to return to her home place,America. But her husband and his family who had some other plans house arrests Betty and her daughter.
Betty tries for an escape from Iran with her daughter to meet her parents and children(two sons) at Michigan. She goes in search of all the ways through which she can escape the prison- Iran.
Betty faces horrible situations where she and her daughter were separated from each other. Betty struggles with consequences she faced whenever she tries for an escape with her loving daughter.
And the days changed to months and then months to years , but still they were prisoners of this alien culture.
Finally after a span of two years that is on February 7,1986 Betty returns to her place with her loving daughter Mahtob.
Literally speaking, this is the book which made me roll out with tears while reading it. loved it a lot. each and every moment of Betty's life is filled with love on her daughter. Being a mom she gave the complete devotion to her daughter.
