    In the cold and foggy north of England, Beth tries, unsuccessfully, to prevent the abduction and forced marriage of 16-year-old Layla. She then defies her dominating and controlling husband, Duncan, and travels to Cairo. In the vast necropolis called the City of the Dead, she finds, and helps, Leyla, who is hiding from her abusive husband and inciting fellow Muslim women to rebel against the oppression under which they exist.The author immediately drew me into this story of women battling the violence of men, both in the UK and Egypt, and their fight against traditions, religion and oppression. It shows us how women the world over can develop strong kinships despite their religion, race or upbringing. She also excellently evoked the political unrest in which Beth becomes caught up in, as well as the heat, squalor and smells of Egypt.The reader can’t help but cheer on the well-drawn characters of Beth and Layla, and the other women in this story, in their battle. The realisation, once again, is drummed home of how fortunate I am not to live under such an oppressive regime.This was the first novel I’d read by Dianne Noble, and I’m really looking forward to reading her other books. Very entertaining and educational!

    I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.On receiving this book I was a little wary as it’s not my usual read, however I soon became engrossed in this story.I’m from Yorkshire and the start of the bookis set in the Yorkshire Dales and Dianne captured the dialect perfectly . The main protagonist is Beth who lives with an abusive husband and is tired of living the life she leads. She decides to go against her husband Duncan and leaves England for Cairo to save a sixteen year old girl Layla from a forced marriage. What’s follows is a dramatic insight to a world where women are kidnapped and forced into marriage. Dianne captures the tragedy and strength of two women who are battling violence, religion and oppression one in the UK one in Egypt. Even though I wouldn’t normally read this genre the book was brilliant and very well written too. Dianne draws you into the story very easily and her descriptive writing helped me to openly shout out for the two women to keep battling.I gave this book 4 stars.

    This is the story of women battling against circumstance, religion, family and men, both in the UK and Egypt. It also shows the kinship women feel for each other, despite being of different races and backgrounds. It made me realise how lucky I am to not live under any sort of oppression. The characters in this novel are believable, inspiring and I was rooting for them!Dianne Noble's descriptions are powerful without being overdone. They place the reader amidst the sights, smells and sounds of Cairo and Yorkshire. Being from Yorkshire, I enjoyed the authentic dialogue in the parts of the story set there. I've never been to Egypt but after reading Oppression, I feel like I have. I received an ARC of Oppression in exchange for an honest review.

    The cover shows Egypt and therefore the title seems obvious at the start - oppression of women. But the story goes much much deeper. Oppression is not restricted to those countries where we imagine men treat women as possessions - oppression is everywhere and that includes the UK. Ms Noble is the champion of the underdog, her characters fly off the page, they're so realistic and her settings plant the reader right in the middle of the action. As with her two other novels, this one did not disappoint at all. Her main characters are like every-day characters, yet they're courageous heroines, ready to fight for what is right. Now I'm waiting eagerly for the next novel.
