Its just a vacation, her husband promises. But soon the horrible truth surfaces. Bettys husband doesnt intend to bring his family back to America ... ever. She may return, he says, but their daughter must stay. And he has centuries of local custom and the oppressive might of a police state backing him. As a stranger in a foreign land, Betty has no money, no friends, no rights. But she does have an unconquerable will. In a hostile, wartorn country where the slightest misstep can mean death, she makes a desperate bid to escape with her child. Her story, her courage and her ultimate triumph are unforgettable.
