Book - 2015
Rate this:
Desperate to create her own destiny, and drawn by the irresistible possibility of earning real dollars as a maid in Beirut, Meron Lemma leaves her devout mother and family behind to join the many other Habesha migrants searching for a better life in the Middle East. Only once there does she realise the ugly truth: instead of opportunity, she has found captivity. Rich in cultural detail and exposing the ongoing, under-reported horrors facing domestic workers in Lebanon today, this is a harrowing account of the unremitting hell of modern slavery. Told through the escalating plight of our heroine, this is not just a fictionalized report of one maid's ordeal, but rather the uncovering of a larger issue plaguing a generation of women.
