A Promise to Nadia: A True Story of a British Slave in the Yemen

Ten years previously Zana Muhsen escaped from the life of slavery in the Yemen into which her father had sold her as a child bride, leaving behind her baby son, her sister Nadia, and Nadia's two small children. As she described so powerfully in her internationally bestselling book SOLD, Zana made a solemn vow to Nadia that she would do everything she possibly could to obtain their freedom as well.

A true love story about the bond of sisters

I don't want to give away too much of the story & others have already said what I could about it. But, may I add this thought. If you have , or know of 2 sisters who don't get along, Zana Muhsen's 2 books, "Sold" & "A Promise to Nadia" are books they should read. She shows, through her writing, just how important the love of a sister can be. Both books are page turners that are so difficult to put down. I HIGHLY recommended both books!

inspirational and fascinating

"A Promise to Nadia" is Zana Muhsen's follow-up to her best-selling book, Sold. In her latest book she writes about her and her mother's plight to bring her sister home, out of slavery safely. The story is at times sad and even tragic, but it is also uplifting and inspirational. This is one of the most riveting and detailed books that I have ever read. I hope one day Zana will write a new book to update readers on Nadia. Anyone who is studying world events, geography and especially the Middle East will certainly appreciate this book.

Good Continuation

It was good to read the continuation and learn the outcome of Nadia. However, i felt there was not much progress for poor Zana to get her sister back to the UK which was a shame. This book was written more so for the update of what promotional activity and publicity is being used to generate awareness of Nadia and Zana's story and how the media and publicity effected Zana in being able to meet her sister and bring her home. Her sister (nadia) showed (maybe by force of her husband)that she didnt want the publicity and she was effected by the way her sister created a scene, which didnt make things easier for Zana. Nadia and the media were not sure whether Zana wanted to sell more books and generate more income or bring her sister back home. It was lost somewhere in-between and even the media felt the book was misleading and edited to enhance Zana story more.
