SYNOPSIS: Ten years ago 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 obtain their freedom as well. A PROMISE TO NADIA will tell the extraordinary story of those ten years; of the family's lone campaign against the Yemeni authorities; of the refusal of their own government in London to help; and of the despair that forced them into a desperate deal with an unofficial military-style organisation specialising in the recovery of abducted children.

Young, Rusty,
ISBN: 9780732911805
Pan MacMillan Australia, Sydney, NSW, 2005. 5th or later Edition
 Soft cover Soft cover. Very Good/. 5th or later Edition. 373 pages. This book is in very good or better condition. It has no tears to the pages and no pages are missing from the book. The spine of the book is in strong condition. The front cover has some bumps and marks. It has signs of previous use but overall is in really nice, tight condition. There is a stain on bottom edge. Items are shipped same day or next business day and are shipped directly from our Australian address. SYNOPSIS: When Rusty Young, a twenty-something Australian lawyer on a backpacking holiday in South America, heard about a convicted English drug smuggler giving guided tours of his jail in Bolivia, he was intrigued. So intrigued that not only did he take the illegal tour himself, he ended up bribing the prison guards to let him stay, spending four months sharing a cell with Thomas, the English inmate, and recording what must be one of the most remarkable prison stories of all time. This is an incredible story of life on the inside of a third world prison. An adrenalin-charged account of drugs, corruption and violence that exposes life on the inside - where the hierarchy is based on money and major crime, where anything is available at a price, and where the prison contains one of the biggest and busiest cocaine laboratories in South America. But more than that, it is a tale of an unlikely friendship, forged in the oddest of circumstances, between a drug smuggler and a lawyer, and a jail where horror is leavened by humour and the greatest cruelty lives side by side with the greatest humanity.
