I must admit that I knew very little about South Asian culture and honour-motivated violence prior to reading Aruna's story. What this book shows so well is how important it is for immigrant women (indeed all women) to know that they are not suffering alone - others have come before them and through courage and determination have survived. This knowledge will go a long way towards reassurance and healing.
