"An Iranian doctor living in America with his American wife Betty and their child Mahtob wants to see his homeland again. He convinces his wife to take a short holiday there with him and Mahtob. Betty is reluctant, as Iran is not a pleasant place, especially if you are American and female. Upon arrival in Iran, it appears that her worst fears are realized: Moody declares that they will be living there from now on. Betty is determined to escape from Iran, but taking her daughter with her presents a larger problem."

In 1987, American housewife Betty Mahmoody published Not Without My Daughter, which became a sensation. In the book, Betty claimed that she and Mahtob, her five-year-old daughter, had been kidnapped from the USA in 1984 and imprisoned in Tehran by her Iranian husband, Dr Sayed Mahmoody - aka 'Moody' - a man she vilified as a violent, sadistic monster. Betty's story culminated with a dramatic escape, as she takes her daughter from Iran over the Zagros Mountains and into Turkey. The book sold 12 million copies and inspired the 1991 Hollywood film of the same name, starring Oscar-winner Sally Field. For twenty years Betty's husband has kept silent. Now, in Lost Without My Daughter, Sayed Mahmoody finally reveals the astonishing truth. As well as being a moving, frank story of a once happy family's collapse, and a father's subsequent search for meaning in his life, Lost Without My Daughter is also a cultural and political history of Iran, from the revolution to the present day. Perhaps more than anything, it is an exercise in truth, the last-ditch attempt of a father desperate to reach his daughter, to let her know that he is not the monster he has been portrayed to be.

Escape! From An Arab Marriage, Cassandra's first book, includes her personal story and documented stories of other women who became involved with Arab/Muslim men who have come from the Middle East. The women in these stories have learned firsthand the truth of how women are thought of in Islamic societies that 6th century traditional abuse and cruelty toward women, alive and well today, is still an everyday part of married life to an Arab/Muslim which includes abduction of any children to countries such as Saudi Arabia where they are forced to remain and where their heartbroken mothers can never see them again or bring them home. Also included in this book is a list of Islamic characteristics of marriages to Arab/Muslim males and of premarital relationships virtually every woman who becomes involved with these individuals inevitably finds herself facing. Not only has Cassandra herself had to survive such an environment, every person whose story is in this book has been the victim of a nightmare relationships she did not realize could exist in real life and that this is only the tip of the iceberg. There are many such stories which are never told because the women are too ashamed, too beaten down, or too afraid to tell anyone for fear of dire consequences for themselves or their children.

Two decades ago, Not Without My Daughter (a global phenomenon made into a film starring Sally Field) told of the daring escape of an American mother and her six-year-old child from an abusive and fanatical Iranian husband and father. Now the daughter tells the whole story, not only of her imprisonment and escape but of life after fleeing Iran: living in fear of re-abduction, battling recurring nightmares and panic attacks, taking on an assumed name, surviving 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. Moving from Michigan to Tehran, from Ankara to Paris, Mahtob reveals the profound resilience of a wounded soul healed by her faith in God's goodness and his care and love for her

قصة شخصية وفضفضة ذاتية، سرعان ما اتشحت بالطابع الإنساني العام الذي نقل حياة امرأة عربية مسلمة توزعت حياتها، دون رغبة منها، لتعيش في الأردن مولدًا، وفي فلسطين أصلًا وفي المملكة العربية السعودية زواجًا، وفي بلاد العم سام عملًا ودراسة، في جميع أطوارها فرحًا وحزنًا شكًا ويقينًا، أملًا ويأسًا، تصميمًا وترددًا.... فصور الكتاب بين دفتيه ما عاشته بطلته من صعوبات وتحديات كان يمكن لها أن ترمي بها في زوايا اليأس ودهاليز الحزن، ولكن شيئًا من ذلك لم يحدث، فقد صبرت وصممت، ونالت ما صبت إليه، وما حلمت به، ولا يزال لديها أمل. تنقلت الكاتبة من خلال الكتاب عبر بيئات متعددة وثقافات متنوعة في سرد شائق وحوار ماتع لتخرج بنا من رحم المعانات بأن ما يتكبده الإنسان في حياته من صعوبات ومزلزلات قد تفضي به فيما يراه إلى حيرة، ولكن ربما تكون فوق حاء ( حيرة ) نقطة لا يراها بنظره القاصر ورؤيته الكليلة. العبيكان 2015
