Not Without My Daughter is a biographical book by Betty Mahmoody detailing the escape of Betty and her daughter, Mahtob, from Betty’s abusive husband in Iran.

ΜΙΑ ΑΛΗΘΙΝΗ ΙΣΤΟΡΙΑ


Τον Αύγουστο του 1984, η Μπέτι Μαχμουντί, Αμερικανίδα παντρεμένη με Ιρανό, ταξίδεψε με τον άντρα και την κόρη της στην Τεχεράνη. Έντρομη ανακαλύπτει κάποια στιγμή πως βρίσκεται δέσμια, στην ουσία, ενός φανατικού σε μια χώρα όπου οι γυναίκες είναι σχεδόν σκλάβες. Η μόνη ελπίδα διαφυγής βρίσκεται στα χέρια ενός παράνομου δικτύου λαθρεμπόρων.


Αυτό το βιβλίο είναι η αληθινή ιστορία μιας γυναίκας που πέτυχε το ακατόρθωτο, μια Οδύσσεια που παρακολουθούμε με κομμένη ανάσα.


In 1977, Betty married Dr. Sayed “Moody” Bozorg Mahmoody. In 1984, when their daughter was four years old, Betty reluctantly agreed to accompany her husband on a two-week vacation to Iran in order for his family to meet Mahtob. However, at the end of the two weeks, Moody decided that he and his wife and daughter should remain in Iran. Betty was trapped in Iran and could not return to the United States. The rest of Not Without My Daughter recounted Betty and Mahtob’s escape from Iran and return to the United States.

While the story was true, Betty changed certain aspects of the story in order to protect those who aided her and her daughter in their escape. She wrote the following:

This is a true story.
The characters are authentic, the events real. But the names and identifying details of certain individuals have been disguised in order to protect them and their families against the possibility of arrest and execution by the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran. These are: Hamid, the owner of a menswear store; Judy, an American woman married to an Iranian; Judy’s brother-in-law, Ali; Judy’s friends, Rasheed, Trish, and Suzanne; the schoolteacher Mrs. Azahr; the mysterious Miss Alavi; Amahl; and the smuggler, Mosehn.
