Betty Mahmoody, a Michigan divorcee with two young sons, met and fell in love with a very nice, intellectual, Westernised doctor from Iran. He had studied and qualified in America. They were happy and eventually married, though she did not enjoy visits from his countrymen, who treated her as inferior. They had a little girl, Mahtob. After much persuasion, Betty agreed to visit moody's family in Iran when Mahtob was four. Once there, Moody changes, becoming more domineering, Islamic and Iranian, expecting Betty to adopt the customs of his homeland

Not Without My Daughter. My daughter dozed in her seat next to the window of a British Airways jetliner, her red-brown curls encircling her face, tumbling haphazardly below her shoulders. They had never been cut. It was August 3, 1984. My darling child was exhausted from our extended journey. We had left Detroit on Wednesday morning, and as we neared the end of this final leg of the trip, the sun was already rising on Friday. My husband, Moody, glanced up from the pages of the book that rested upon his paunch. He pushed his glasses up to his balding forehead. You better get ready," he said

Based on a book by Betty Mahmoody and William Hoffer

Based on a book by Betty Mahmoody and William Hoffer. A fact-based thriller about a Michigan housewife, Betty Mahmoody (Sally Field), who has come to the Middle East with her young daughter (Sheila Rosenthal) and Iranian-born doctor husband (Alfred Molina). It's just a vacation, her husband promises. But soon the horrible truth surfaces.

In August 1984, Michigan housewife Betty Mahmoody accompanied her husband to his native Iran for a two-week vacation. To her horror, she found herself and her four-year-old daughter, Mahtob, virtual prisoners of a man rededicated to his Shiite Moslem faith, in a land where women are near-slaves and Americans are despised. Their only hope for escape lay in a dangerous underground that would not take her child...

Now the true story of this courageous woman and her breathtaking odyssey bursts upon the screen in the Pathe Entertainment production starring Academy Award-winner Sally Field!

Not Without My Daughter is a Literary Guild Alternate Selection.

Did you ever read a book wherein one of the characters was so monstrous that you felt like killing him? That's the feeling that I got while reading about what Moody did to Betty. Betty was the most courageous woman I've ever read about. She tells the story about herself and her daughter without looking for pity. She just tells the story as it was....and what a story! I thoroughly enjoyed this harrowing but hopeful book.
Bulace
I simultaneously wriggled in my chair and clenched my fists as I learned of the horrors this woman and her daughter endured. I had seen the movie and was aware of the outcome, but the story is so well told that I worried that the actual story would have a different, less thrilling ending. The way women were treated in Iran is a tragedy! It's stunning that The author went on to help others in similar situations versus curling up in a ball and hiding out for the remainder of Moody's life. How courageous!! An important, eye-opening read!

As a high school teacher, this book should be REQUIRED READING for every high school student (read "female"). The world is a dangerous, sinister place for those who are naive...and when Betty Mahmoody innocently followed her Iranian husband to Iran, she never even checked what rights she was surrendering. And she surrendered plenty & as such, lived through a nightmare of hell. I showed the film (starring Sally Field) to my sophomore, junior & senior girls to remind them that not all countries treat women in a sane manner as they're accustomed to in this country. There were brave Iranian citizens who facilitated her escape & if caught, would have paid with their lives. I reminded them that the next time they complained because their prom dress wasn't the color they wanted or they didn't like their new hairstyle, they should remember that most of the world's women have it a whole lot worse. This book brings that truth home in a realistic, human way.

What can I say--READ THIS! Then read it again, pass it on, I first read this book years ago when it hit the market. I loaned it and lost track of it, so I bought it again. I re-read it and was still entranced by the excellent, page-turning excitement the story offered. A true story, it points out how cultural differences must be addressed early on in a relationship to avoid heartache and tragedy later. I feel this story is timeless and crosses all cultural lines.

I took this book to St Lucia on my month long vacation.
I could not put this book down when I got back from the beach.
I read at night in the hammock and then in bed.
I could hear Sally Fields voice narrate like the movie.
I always like the book better for some reason.

I absolutely couldn't read this book fast enough!!! I was entranced by this true story!!! I have never seen the movie but hopefully as soon as it is available in Netflix DVD I can watch it. I also purchased the daughter's book to read afterwards.

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys autobiographies. For me, it was hard to put down this book, because of the writing style and the fact that I knew the story was true. I saw the movie before I read the book and I'm glad I did, because I would have been disappointed had it been the other way around. It's not possible to completely tell this story in a 2-hour movie. It is also sobering to know that Betty's story represents many women in the same situation, who will never have the opportunity to find freedom to write this kind of book.
On the cover is written the word "Spellbinding". It most certainly was. I had only seen about half of the Sally Field movie and saw Betty on a talk show not long after the book came out. An unbelievable story of a courage and determination for both the mother and daughter. One can't begin to imagine what they went through. The book was hard to put down and many a chapter had me sitting on the edge of my seat. An excellent book.
