Book Review: Unbroken Spirit by Ferzanna Riley

Share this

Two girls are locked in airless, dark, dingy room, waiting with dread, they are comforted with the fact that at least they have each other. Who are they? Ferzanna and her younger sister Farah. Why are they locked away? Because they accept a culture that is not acceptable. They are Muslim girls imprisoned by their culture.

 Unbroken Spirit is the autobiography of Ferzanna Riley, a young Muslim woman who refused to be enslaved by her culture in 1980s Britain. It speaks of the abuse she suffered by the hands of those she thought loved her and how she rejected them and their beliefs to live a life of her own.

It is a powerful story of courage, sorrow and triumph that shines a light on the dark side of growing up in a strict culture.
