Rather than returning Sorayas dowry, as custom required before taking a second wife, he plotted with four friends and a counterfeit mullah to dispose of her. Together, they accused Soraya of adultery.

Her only crime was cooking for a friends widowed husband. Exhausted by a lifetime of abuse and hardship, Soraya said nothing, and the makeshift tribunal took her silence as a confession of guilt. They sentenced her to death by stoning: a punishment prohibited by Islam but widely practiced. Day by day sometimes minute by minute Sahebjam deftly recounts these horrendous events, tracing Sorayas life with searing immediacy, from her arranged marriage and the births of her nine children to her husbands increasing cruelty and her horrifying execution, where, by tradition, her father, husband, and sons hurled the first stones.

This is one womans story, but it stands for the stories of thousands of women who suffered and continue to suffer the same fate. It is a story that must be told.
