Reviews

"A horrific story of appalling murder and awesome courage." * Daily Mail *
"I felt moved by this book as the experiences resonate with many of the victims that we deal with every day. It also highlights how honour systems within family and community dynamics can paralyse someone into a place of great fear. It takes a great amount of courage to speak out. Sarbjit has been significant to enabling others to peer into the life of a family that put honour before a life. My hope is that this story will encourage many not to be silent but to come forward and speak out. As a campaigner in this field I give credit to this story that seeks to break the silences of many." * Jasvinder Sanghera CBE, Chief Executive of Karma Nirvana and bestselling author of SHAME and DAUGHTERS OF SHAME *
