Penguin, 2007, Softcover, Book Condition: Good, Unstated
Pauline Knowles-Samarraie set off for Baghdad in 1962 to start a new life with her Iraqi husband, Munem, a talented scientist. But Munem's career was to take him to the center of Saddam Hussein's regime, where he witnessed brutal atrocities against his colleagues and their families before running afoul of the ruthless dictator himself. He awaited his own fate with sickening dread, and was desperately fearful for the safety of his wife and children, but powerless to protect them. Pauline's great Iraq adventure was to come to an unthinkable end. This emotional and devastating account takes you behind the global headlines to the very human story of one family who suffered the brutal extremes of a ruthless regime.
