Freedom’s Stand

  By: J.M. Windle 
Freedom’s Stand is about the problems women face in Afghanistan, how they can be sold by their wali -a male that is in charge of them- to pay their debts, into marriage. Sometimes they get into a good marriage with love but more often than not they are beaten and abused by the husband and they are powerless to stop it. This work of fiction does not shy away from the hard issue that the women that live there and how the foreigners are treated and looked upon.  They all so talk some about ho corrupt their government is, they will kill an innocent man to cover their tracks, as the book talks about. All the characters in the story face different situations and different problems than the others so it gives you a wide range of problems and how they handled them.
This book is very informational about all the different subjects she talks about in the whole book. I really enjoyed reading this book, even though it was really long for a novel but worth ever page.  I received this book through Tyndale’s book review program and even though this is only the second thing I have received from them I am impressed in what they publish. But all in all I enjoyed this read.
I was not made to write a positive review, only to voice my opinion. This book was written by J.M.Windle published by Tyndale press.
