Publisher Comments:

The adopted daughter of the king of Morocco, whose father was arrested and executed for a 1972 attempt to assassinate the king, tells the story of how she, her mother, and her five siblings endured years of imprisonment in a desert penal colony. This gripping memoir, a bestseller in hardcover, is "a graphic picture of what evil is like from the vantage point of its most innocent victims" ("Booklist"). of photos.

A riveting book. The story of a woman who went from being at the heart of the Moroccan king's court to, along with her family, being a prisoner in possibly the most vile prison in Morocco.

It is a story of victory over unbelievable misery, a triumph of the spirit, a will to live which finally resulted in freedom for herself and her entire family. A must read

This book is not the easiest read for several reasons. The writing certainly isn't "literary," and at times, you might have to re-read a paragraph or two to recall what role someone played in author Malika Oufkir's tortuous life.

But if weaknesses pop up in writing style, the strength of the book lies in the memories and voice of Malika. She and her family, including a brother still in diapers at the time they were captured -- survived a horrible and unjust 20-year imprisonment in Morocco.

How they survived will make you wonder if you could endure such conditions. And how they escaped is something you'll think about for a very long time.
