Not Without My Daughter, 1987, by Betty Mahmoody ******

This book casually fell into my hands in a book fair and I decided to give it a try. It is a non-fiction. It narrates the story of an Iranian Doctor (physician) in the USA who traveled with his US American wife and his daughter from USA to Iran to pay a visit to his family. Once in Iran, he refused to go back to the USA, he also forced his wife and his daughter to remain with him, at the same time forcing them to adapt to the Iranian culture.
He became less westernized and his wife couldn't recognize the man he once fell in love with. This is a story of struggle.
 As I said earlier, I do not want to be a spoiler. I enjoyed every bit of this book, I couldn't keep it down. It is a very easy read. I loved it. I highly recommend, one of my favourite.
