            Rebel: My escape from Saudi Arabia to freedom

            In January 2019, then 18-year-old Saudi woman Rahaf Mohammed escaped from her family while holidaying in Kuwait. She was fleeing systematic abuse of her human rights as a woman growing up in Saudi Arabia and, specifically, her family's threats to kill her because she desired the ...freedoms Western women take for granted. She boarded a plane bound for Bangkok, en route to Australia where she intended to seek asylum. But on her arrival the Thai authorities, acting on the instructions of Saudi officials, detained Rahaf with the aim of returning her to her family. Knowing this would mean her death, Rahaf barricaded herself in an airport hotel room and appealed for help through social media, creating a Twitter storm and capturing the attention of government leaders, human rights advocates and media around the world. Rahaf was eventually taken under the protection of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and granted refugee status. When Australian authorities failed to respond with the urgency the situation required, she was granted asylum in Canada. Seven days after her ordeal began, she arrived in Toronto to begin a new life. Rebel is a passionate story by a woman who refused to allow a system to define who she was and what she could be. It shines a light on the rampant and dangerous inequalities that persist in Saudi society, and inspires women everywhere to dream of a better future for themselves, and their daughters. Praise for Rebel: 'Rebel makes it clear that the cultural honour/shame dynamic and the male guardianship system continue to weigh heavily on the daily lives of Saudi women ... Rahaf ultimately fled the Kingdom, under cover of darkness by the skin of her teeth, in order to spread her wings.' - Ayaan Hirsi Ali, author of Infidel 'The astonishing story of how one incredibly courageous teenager took on Saudi Arabia's archaic male guardianship system and won! An inspiring read that will leave you shaking with fury, and then cheering in solidarity.'

            Growing up in the Polish village of Tarnogrod on the fringes of a deep pine forest, gives Mala the happiest childhood she could have hoped for. But, as the German invasion begins, her beloved village becomes a ghetto and her family and friends reduced to starvation. She takes mat...ters into her own hands, and bravely removes her yellow star, risking sneaking out to the surrounding villages to barter for food. It is on her way back that she sees her loved ones rounded up for deportation, and receives a smuggled letter from her sister warning her to stay away. With only her cat, Malach, and the strength of the stories taught by her family, she walks away from everything she holds dear. Malach becomes her family, her only respite from painful loneliness, a guide and reminder to stay hopeful even when faced with unfathomable darkness. With her guardian angel by her side, Mala finds a way to navigate the dangerous forests, outwit German soldiers and hostile villagers, and survive, against all odds.

            Fox News Books For mothers of faith who don't feel virtuous enough, people who feel burdened by their mistakes, and anyone who has ever failed, a powerful, reassuring book that examines how the women of the Bible coped with situations and problems similar to those experienced by ...women today, and offers much-needed insights to help us better understand the lessons these Biblical lives hold for our own. Biblical stories featuring men have long been used as lessons for people of faith. Biblical stories about parents and children have longer center on fathers and sons. But the mothers and daughters of the Bible have stories that are just as powerful and insightful-such as Moses' mother, Jochebed, who takes enormous risks to protect her son from Pharaoh's genocidal plans. By contrast, Rebekah is a mother who dishonorably plans and schemes for her son Jacob's advancement. She plays favorites, practices deception, and will sacrifice anything for Jacob's future. This book highlights the lessons we can draw from Jochebed, Rebekah, and other women of the Bible, examining the relationships of mothers and daughters, mothers and sons, and daughters and fathers. Very few of these mothers and daughters were paragons of virtue. They were human beings who faltered and struggled to do their best, yet sometimes failed. While some heard God's voice, others could not. Yet in their imperfection, these women are models for our own lives. Their stories show us that God speaks to us not only through our virtues, but through our mistakes as well.
