Kept My Interest

by Linda F on Aug 2, 2012

I usually read mystery novels, but this seemed interesting...I was not disappointed. The book came promptly in very good condition. I have suggested this book to my book club.


Amazing Book

by SONDRA S on Aug 30, 2010

This is one of the best books I have ever read. It is the story of a young girl who was raised as a "princess" so that the king of Morocco's daughter would have a companion . She moved into the palace when she was about 5 and lived there for 10 years. When her father was charged with leading a coup against the present king he was shot and his whole family was sent to prison for 20 years. The fact that any of them survived the 20 years of hell is almost too hard to believe. Highly Recommended.

A truly amazing story of the strength of family love and a woman's refusal to be defeated.


Stolen interesting story

by Lnspy on Oct 30, 2008

Our book club chose this book and it was very interesting. But oddly enough, not very emotional, despite the dreadful details of their captivity. The writing is ackward, the story has too many flash forwards and back, so loses tension; and our narrator can only focus on herself without much clear empathy for her siblings. While we can tell she was hurt by their suffering, it seemed too much just about her. I know this is her story, but she could share the suffering of the others with more insight and compassion. I admire her and her siblings but their is more that is not said.


A story about some truely Śmazing souls

by fillatti on Dec 8, 2007

This family's heart wrentching story is haunting, dark, and desparate. It is soul crushingly sad, yet amazingly hopeful and inspiring. It is impossible to read this book and not think about it everyday, for the rest of your life. There are not many on this planet who have endured or suffered as much as this amazing family. Open your mind and your heart, read this book! F.Fillatti
