More Description

Born in 1953, Malika Oufkir is the eldest daughter of General Oufkir, the closest aide of the king of Morocco. Adopted by the king at the age of five, Malika spent most of her childhood in the seclusion of the court harem. Then, on August 16, 1972, her father was executed after an attempt to assassinate the king. Malika and her family were immediately imprisoned in a desert penal colony. After fifteen years, the last ten of which they spent in solitary cells, the Oufkir children managed to make a courageous escape. Stolen Lives is a heart-rending account of bravery in the face of extreme deprivation and an unforgettable story of a woman's personal journey to freedom.

A huge international best-seller in hardcover, Stolen Lives appeared on many best-seller lists including: the New York Times, USA Today, the Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, BookSense, the New York Post, Publishers Weekly, Entertainment Weekly, and more.
