Broken Chains by Emiliya Ahmadova is a touching story that will appeal to a wide audience because of the sensitive, not-so-often discussed questions it raises. In the heart of this story is the important question: What does it take to live with a deep sense of inner freedom? The author opens her narrative with a fortuitous encounter between the parents of the protagonist and moves on to show how this encounter leads to a brief affair that culminates in an unwanted pregnancy. Esmira, the mother of the protagonist, raises her daughter alone, under difficult conditions. Now an adult, Silvana has to face the challenges of growing up and the horrors of abusive relationships. How she deals with her abusive Christian partner is what will blow readers' minds. This is a page-turning tale of one woman’s struggle to avoid the same fate that befell her mother, a story of suffering, inhumanity, and redemption.
Emiliya Ahmadova’s Broken Chains is a powerful work in the area of protest literature, a tale that gives voice to the voiceless people who suffer in any form of relationship. In Silvana, Ahmadova develops an icon of protest against the numerous forms of injustices orchestrated against women. The author writes confidently about issues in a wide selection of themes, including religion, interracial, and inter-religious marriage, the primacy of human dignity, the primary right to freedom and happiness, and a lot more. Silvana is a compelling and well-developed character who will not only interest readers, but will be a powerful example of a warrior for freedom and human rights.
