Rite of Honour by Alison Buckley

Condemned to an honour killing after Uday Hussein and his henchmen rape her during the 1990s Iraqi-Kurdish war, Evin Feili flees to the Northern Iraqi camp of Kurdish guerrilla fighters.

Distinguishing herself in combat and intelligence operations in eastern Turkey, she turns to find the rebels have recruited Mehrdad Hassan, a former Israeli spy whom she suspects her father has hired to vindicate his honour.

Driven to avenge her ordeal, she leads a victorious women's fighting unit against ISIS forces in Syria, aiding the rebels' declaration of autonomy. Peace with Turkey then leaves Evin to pursue her own and Kurdistan's honour deep inside Iran.

Based on the Kurdish people's struggle for self-determination and human rights in Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran, Rite of Honour reflects the lives of thousands of Middle-Eastern women.
