Reviews - What do customers think about High Tea in Mosul: The True Story of Two Englishwomen in War-torn Iraq?

High Tea In Mosul  Nov 15, 2007
Super read. True insight as to how many women are treated in the Middle East. It makes you happy, sad, angry and anxious. These women must have truly loved their husbands to endure what they did. I could not live under such conditions.
