Between Two Worlds is an amazing personal story of how the Islamic Regime has affected women in Iran and particularly of one woman who is detained in Tehran's notorious Evin prison. Roxana tells her story with an amazing sense of balance. On one hand are the amazing friendships she is able to forge with Iranian people and culture. On the other hand she does not minimize the horror of the Islamic Regime in its quest to remove personal freedom from those within its borders. She narrates her story well - keeping an enthusiasm that must be difficult to maintain in the face of her memories of such unfair and cruel treatment. I frequently had to comfort myself during the book by remembering that she is alive and well, and has been able to return to a place where she is free to tell her story. This book is of particular interest to members of the Baha'i faith as it gives a very rare personal glimpse of the lives of two of the Friends in Iran who are facing trial on spurious charges of espionage. Thank you for sharing your amazing journey and I hope that the lives of those who read/hear it are challenged to appreciate what personal freedom is all about.

Saberi does a great job describing the inner prison life in Iran under the terrible current regime. Her style of writing makes you really appreciate the struggles she went through, along with the Baha'is and other political prisoners.
