On a final note: I don't know why this is, but most who have read Not Without My Daughter are unaware that it has a sequel: For the Love of a Child.

When they had landed in Tehran, Moody's family had gathered at the airport to meet them and showered them with gifts. She endangered her child by staying with a mentally unstable man, not to mention visiting a country she knows absolutely nothing about. One day, an unnamed individual instructed Betty to go to an address and ask for the manager Amahl, who would find a way for both Betty and Mahtob to escape. Betty's account, on the other hand, provides details left out in the movie, such as Betty had two sons from a previous marriage and how she didn't see the signals of Moody's temperament change when they lived in the United States.Betty Mahmoody's account of her time in Iran is not only full of gross factual inaccuracies but also blatant racism and xenophobia that made the reading experience hard to stomach. Was she being disingenuous regarding the circumstances surrounding her departure from the United States and about the length of her stay in Iran?

We must be aware that we are listening to an American woman tell us about a foreign culture based off eighteen months of experience instead of paying attention to the many who have lived and breathed this culture every day for their entire lives.Many of her husband's relatives were actually shocked and scolded him for his treatment of her and their daughter, including his own mother. I had watched the film version of this when it first came out and found the account so harrowing that when I re-watched Not Without My Daughter: The Harrowing True Story of a Mother's Courage I found myself wanting to read the accounts of Betty Mahmoody and her daughter Mathob Mahmoody.
