From the bestselling author of Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

Always a rebel, Marianne was the first girl in her class to bleach her hair and learn how to smoke. A few boyfriends and one abortion later she falls in love with Salim, the proud and elegant Pakistani with eyes like treacle. East meets West in a passionate mixed marriage.

However, Marianne knows little of the Islamic view of motherhood. When his wife proves unfaithful, Salim reasons that she is morally incapable of bringing up her children and kidnaps them while she is at work...

MEDIA REVIEWS

The novel assumes the tension of detective fiction... The mother-child detail is all painfully right. This is a nicely balanced account of marital breakdown in peculiarly difficult circumstances - Sunday Times

Deborah Moggach captures brilliantly the basic incompatibilities and misunderstandings that arise when two people have little knowledge of each other's culture...both funny and moving - Sunday Express

In Stolen she has created a likeable protagonist Marianne, naive, hedonistic, longing for a life beyond Ashford and her job at the Coach and Horses...The themes are those of an ambitious, dynamic novel... Absorbing...dramatic and disturbing - Guardian
