9781908387714: Shackled to my Family

NEW, UPDATED EDITION: The 2015 updated edition, produced by popular demand from our readers has been substantially re-edited.

This is the true story of Samina Younis, born in Britain to a strict, religious Muslim family - a family that practices the tradition of forced marriage which they brought back with them from their village in Pakistan.

One of seven sisters and two brothers, she was a bitter disappointment to her parents who desperately wanted a son; as a result she suffered terrible physical and mental abuse at the hands of both her mother and father; later she was to fall victim to continued abuse from her very own siblings.

At the age of just sixteen, on a trip to Pakistan Samina was told that she must marry her second cousin, a boy she had met only once in her life and for whom she had no affection whatsoever.

The writing of this book was Samina's only way of coming to terms with the life that she had been forced into, the mental conflict over her enduring love for a mother, now dead, who even on her deathbed was compelled to dominate and control her future. The book recounts her struggle against her family and her dramatic escape to a life of her own.

The publishers and author wish to thank the thousands of people who have already read this book and made it such a success in raising awareness to cruel and archaic practices forced on women and men around the world.

About the Author:

Samina Younis was born and raised in England. She is a budding model and actress and has her own cosmetics boutique. She is a first time writer and began writing this book as a therapy for herself to overcome her tragic past. She felt she had to tell her true story to inspire other women to break free from their family controlled lives. She has a passion for helping other people who may be in the same situation as she once was and she would like to inspire other women to follow their heart. On a typical day you may find her working out at her local gymnasium. She enjoys travelling, reading and going to the cinema. She loves Italian food, eating doughnuts, baking, cooking and belly laughter.

Review:

"This touching and harrowing story is even stronger for being true. As someone who is white/British the events that play out are shocking but also really informative and educational about a culture I'm unfamiliar with. The lead has shown great courage in making her story heard. The book is well written and engaging throughout." - Amazon Reader (5/5 Stars) "I was gripped right from the start to this book,shocking and heartbreaking story.highly recommended for anyone who is into reading true accounts of women who are ill treated an forced into marriage." - Amazon Reader (5/5 Stars)
