In 1987 Betty Mahmoody captured the world's attention and admiration with the compelling and heartrending story of her virtual imprisonment in Iran and subsequent daring escape with her daughter Mahtob. With over fifteen million copies sold worldwide, Not Without My Daughter topped international bestseller lists and alerted the world to the implications of intercultural relationships and the issue of international parental child abduction. Five years after the publication of her book, Betty still receives hundreds of letters each year from women and men in similar circumstances, each seeking advice, counsel, and encouragement.
In For the Love of a Child, Mrs. Mahmoody picks up where she left off, at the American Embassy in Turkey. She describes her cultural readjustment to America, her constant fear of her husband Moody's revenge, and her ultimate frustration with a legal system that cannot offer protection to her daughter or herself. But the story is not hers alone. Betty describes her many encounters with others who have tried to escape similar situations, telling their dramatic stories with the sensitivity of one who knows only too well what they've been through and how far they still have to go. For the Love of a Child is thrilling adventure with a vitally important message.

It's definitely not another "Not Without My Daughter" but I love reading Betty's writing and hearing some more stories post-Iran! Check this out if you want to hear about the production of the movie, the writing of the book, and Moody's reaction to everything.
