I have read both the two books of that were written. I hope that these books will raise the attention of many other people to the horrors of what is happening. If Nadia is still their I hope for her the very best and that eventually this knowledge will go to someone in power to help her. My greatest sympathy goes out to the family, she will always be in my prayers.

I dont know why i feel that nadia isnt back, because if she was it would have been in the papers. I dont think there has been any news on nadia at all. I pray to God that i am wrong!!!

That is what every one would like now, Jessica. only question is, how much longer does she have of her life now? anyway, many people have heard that nadia is safely home in England, although this is only news from passers by. We all wish Nadia and the Muhsens the best.

I am a mother and a sister and I can guarantee that whatever Zana and her mother have done to find Nadia has being done out of love and devotion and nothing less let alone money. As a niece of two missionary doctors who have being working in Yemen going on 12 years I know of the horror, emotional and physical torture women of Yemen face everyday from their so called husbands, fathers and father in laws. I have no doubt that Nadia has being brain washed and beaten into submission over the years and she has no choice but to obey her husband and other cruel men who rule her life and I wholeheartedly believe that if she were left alone and not told what to do and say she would be telling every father and mother that have sold or kidnapped a child that what they are doing is absolutely horrendous.
I can only hope that one day this poor woman will have a chance to escape all the horrors that the men in her life have put her through and will be able to lead a loving and normal life with her real family, the ones who truly love her in England.

you are right Sadia. As long as they are now safe, there is nothing more to worry about. Despite their safety thouugh, i still hav a strong hatred towards the father. people always say that he was bad to d oso, but do remember he is not the only one, and many other men around him might have done the same. we should look and the full story, this is still going on, these poor children are still being whised away to hell. surely this can be stopped, the thought of it is terrifying. i am 14 myself, so this is probably scarier to me than to all of you adults.

I'd like to comment on the message that Talia posted on 9/1/2008. I believe that the publicity should go on because there are so many young girls like Zana who still exist in this world.
As far as what NAS posted on 8/24/2008, well everyone feels differently about things. If Zana was so affected, surely it was because this is not what she wanted and according to her it was that bad a life out there. Maybe Nadia just conditioned herself or was brainwashed over the years??? Maybe she wasnt a fighter and preferred to just accept things the way they were- some people find this option so much easier.
Important thing is that they are both back in the UK. I have been to most of these countries and I can entirely believe Zana in her account of what happened.

I sent an email to Andrew Croft and he has sent me a reply to advise that Nadia and her family are safely back in the UK. Also Marcus came looking for his mum when he was 18. I was so pleased for them all. I wish the family well, but cannot say the same for their Father, who had a cushy life here compared to the life he imposed on his children who he took to the Yemen and left there. There is no justice sometimes in this world. He is an evil man without compassion.

Thank god she's home - I read both books yesterday & was so upset that I couldn't read another book afterwards bcoz I couldn't concentrate/stop thinking about them all. I suspected that after Mohammmeds dad Gowad died - he would no longer be under control & I hoped he would let Nadia return with him & the children. Nadia would now travel between the 2 country's due to her children knowing no other life originally & being brought up to Yemen's religion way of life, the whole point of her not returning to England was that she wouldn't leave her children so for a few children who may not be happy in England she would as a loving mother travel to see them? This is all conjecture but I would imagine it to be the case.
I am not a violent person & always help anyone in life I possibly can YET I found myself thinking last night of a simple solution to Nadia's plight....pay some "Heavies" in England to put a gun to Gowad + her dads head & threaten them/monitor them with fear until they gave permission to enable them to come home!!! This is ME!!! a mild-mannered, anti-violent person?!?
I'm just so glad she's home & I can sleep tonight!
