Not Without My Daughter

My colleague Susan gifted me the book " NOT WITHOUT MY DAUGHTER" by Betty Al Mahmoudi with William Hoffer.  

Like reading books which keeps you interested and engaged till the end. A very good book which is hard to keep down qualifies for the best read. 

True story on the harrowing life of Betty Al Mahmoudi in Iran and her escape plan with  five year old daughter Mahtob,  from Iran to America makes it an interesting read.

This book throws a light on the cultural differences in both the countries around that period of time. I am sure there will be lot changes in the present Iran.




Its a story of a women, her fear, pain struggle and above all her bond of love with her daughter makes it worth reading.

SP Rating : 4/5 

Final Verdict

Curiosity would not let you put this book down. Captivating and engaging makes it worth reading. Leaves a lasting impression,   makes you think even after you have finished reading  the book.



Enjoying the beautiful nature of Goa. Its been raining here non-stop, since past two days . The fields around has been filled with water.....to me its a rare sight :)) 

Will miss this serene nature ,peace and fresh air. Hopefully !  should be back in  Mumbai by Sunday.

Thats all from my end..... you guys have lovely weekend ahead  !

  4. Oh, wow! I remember watching this movie on TV (starring Sally Fields, I believe) when I was a little kid. I didn't know that it was based on a true story until years later, when I read this book in junior high.
