Unveiled: One Woman's Nightmare in Iran by Cherry Mosteshar

Attractive, educated in Oxford, and a respected journalist, Cherry Mosteshar seemed the last woman likely to become a terrified Islamic bride: beaten if a wisp of hair showed from beneath her head scarf, forbidden from leaving the country without her husband's permission, and legally worth half of a man.

This is Cherry's true story -- from her arrival into a monstrous marriage where she became justo ne of her husband's wives, to her harrowing years as a victim of his sexual whims and his violent outbursts, to her heroic struggle to maintain her identity while a prisoner stripped of all rights and dignity, to her plight as a terrified victim ready to do anything to save her own life and escape...
