It is difficult to believe that so many women still live in extreme violence and are killed in the hands of their partners. We all want to think that this doesn’t happen. But as Aabra shows in Taliban Escape, violence against women is a growing problem.

Taliban Escape is about one woman’s struggle to free herself from the shackles of violence and abuse in the Taliban. Adeela was brought up in a very repressed and violent environment. As she was growing up, she witnessed most of the members of her family killed, including her mother, sister, and beloved aunt. The father was the king of the house and women were considered far beneath them. Female children were so shunned that the mother would be violently abused if she bore a daughter.

Neither were girls allowed to get an education or read books. But Adeela had a wonderful aunt who taught her to read and opened a whole life of freedom and emancipation for her. But she disappeared never to be seen again. No one knew if she was killed or if she escaped. Adeela’s relationship with her aunt made her dream of a better life. But Adeela suffered much before she was able to emancipate herself and escape.

This is one of the most intense books I ever read. It’s hard to come to terms with the fact that there is so much cruel violence against women in the world. But since one in three women is currently suffering from some type of abuse in the hands of their partners, this book is an important one for all of us to read and ponder. This story was inspiring and very disturbing in places. After reading Taliban Escape, I now see women’s reality very differently. Thank you Aabra for such a wonderfully courageous and inspiring book!

Aabra has a degree in Psychology from Temple University. She has been writing most of her life and has eight published novels, including Taliban Love Slave, Sailing into Darkness, and her latest novel Time of Fear. All her books are written anonymously.
