Saberi, a journalist working in Iran, was dragged from her home and arrested, charged with espionage. In this compelling and inspirational story, she writes of her imprisonment, her trial, her ultimate release, and the faith that helped her through her captivity.
From the Publisher:
An Iranian-American journalist chronicles her imprisonment in Iran, and provides a penetrating look at the country and its political tensions, based on six years of research and interviews with Iranians across society.
Annotation:
In January of 2009, Roxana Saberi, an Iranian-American journalist from New Jersey, was arrested in Iran and held in solitary confinement, where she was subjected to psychological torture and intense questioning on trumped up charges that she was a spy. Saberi was held for several weeks before any of her loved ones were told of her whereabouts, and she was not allowed to meet with an attorney until five weeks into her imprisonment. She was initially sentenced to nine years in prison, but thanks to the fervent protests of organizations and leaders from around the world, she was finally freed after four months of captivity. In this harrowing memoir, Saberi relives her nightmarish ordeal in gripping detail, and calls attention to the plight of her former cellmates who lent her the courage and dignity she needed to endure and who continue to be held under oppressive Muslim law.

Praise

"[A] compassionate and courageous memoir....[Saberi] allows us to witness her intellectual and moral awakening, including the painful mental and physical measures she must take to save herself. She does this in the interest of revealing the broader tale of an intellectually mature society fighting for its identity in a swirl of theocratic injustice." - Susanne Pari 04/18/2010

"[Saberi's] book is strongest when she is joined by fascinating cellmates, a cast of persecuted minorities, activists and researchers who do not generate international headlines but illustrate the dishearteningly broad spectrum of human behavior that can turn an Iranian into a political prisoner." - Azadeh Moaveni 07/18/2010
