Quick Overview:

Offering a remarkable look at the lifestyle and beliefs of her family, and the rigid ideas of shame and honor they used to oppress her, The Imam's Daughter by Hannah Shah also shines a light on contemporary Muslim culture. It is the inspiring story of the courage and emancipation of Hannah Shah herself.
 
Hannah Shah is an Imam’s daughter. She lived the life of a devout Muslim in a family of Pakistani Muslims in England, but behind the front door, she was a caged butterfly. For many years, her father abused her in the cellar of their home. At sixteen, she discovered a plan to send her to Pakistan for an arranged marriage, and she gathered the courage to run away. Relentlessly hunted by her angry father and brothers, who were intent on executing an “honor” killing, she moved from house to house in perpetual fear to escape them. Over time, she converted to Christianity and was able to live and marry as she wished. Hannah found the courage to live her life free from shame, free from religious intolerance, and free from the abuse that haunted her childhood. This is a remarkable true story of how a young girl escaped a life of torture … a story you won’t forget.
