Stolen Lives, Malika Oufkir??'s intensely moving account of her twenty years imprisoned in a desert jail in Morocco, was a surprise international bestseller. The second non-fiction title ever selected for the Oprah Book Club, Stolen Lives sold 432,000 copies in hardcover and its debut generated a storm of media. Malika Oufkir was born into extreme privilege as the daughter of the king of Morocco??'s closest aide, and she grew up in the oppulence of the palace as the companion to the princess.& nbsp; But in 1972, her life of luxury came to a crashing halt.& nbsp; Her father was executed for attempting to assassinate the king, and she and her family were imprisoned for two decades in a desert jail. Their escape was spectacular, their freedom hard won.& nbsp; & nbsp; What was it like to return to the world after twenty years of darkness and deprivation? In Freedom, Malika Oufkir writes candidly about her return to civilization: her new life in Paris; discovering love and intimacy at the age of 40; handling an ATM machine; negotiating a grocery store and her impulse to stockpile. In Stolen Lives she wrote longingly of becoming a mother, and of the children she had hoped to have, even as she watched that hope die as she aged. In Freedom, she becomes mother to one of her nieces and ultimately adopts a child in Morocco: a boy she names Adam.Moving, often funny, and full of wisdom and insight, this is sure to take up where Stolen Lives ended: Malika bravely encountering a strange world and emerging triumphant.
