Lori’s Song by Lori Foroozandeh

ImageThe book, “LORI’S SONG” by Lori Foroozandeh is a non-fiction true account of her captivity in Iran after 911.  It has other facets of tragedy in her life as well,:
 ISBN:  9781432738297
Available in : Paperback, Hardcover, Kindle and E-book.
Though she endured a childhood of physical and sexual abuse, nothing would ever equal what happened to her in Iran the weeks following 9/11.Lori, an American married to an Iranian, had been working and living as an ordinary member of Iranian society for almost 4 years when she had heard rumors that the U.S. was going to be attacked. That was on September 9, 2001. She tried and failed to call home and give warning.

The news that all those rumors were horribly true came on September 11th 2001. That was when her husband suddenly announced that they had to go back to the States in case there were repercussions.

On September 12, 2001, Lori and her husband were at the Shiraz bus terminal intending to catch a bus to Istanbul and from there to Heathrow and home to the U.S.A. They were totally unprepared for the convoy of troop carriers that suddenly drove up and the armed men who came pouring out to take the hapless couple prisoner.

There was no explanation offered. The men took Lori’s husband one direction and she another, pushing them blindfolded into the back of the troop carriers with other prisoners, mostly Iranian.

Who the armed men were was anybody’s guess but they took their prisoners to POW camp in unfamiliar territory and there, Lori was held, tortured, raped, and starved with them for over a month. Her husband was not to be seen again.

Lori was rescued with one of her fellow inmates by the girl’s family and, after riding a llama for 1-2 days over mountainous terrain; she arrived at the Iran Immigration center. By then, she weighed in at only 70 pounds, was still suffering from the many injuries she’d received at the hands of her torturers, and wanted badly to get home to her family in the USA. Even then, she had to fight Iranian Islamic bureaucracy to have permission to go, as the husband was unavailable to grant it. In any Islamic country, unknown to many western women, the husband or guardian’s permission is always required for a woman to travel anywhere.

Lori had been married to Mohammad for 9 years and thought she could trust him but, since their arrival in Iran in 1998, his personality and behavior had changed so radically as to make this most recent nightmare highly suspicious.

The events told here are true. It was no coincidence that this American citizen had been placed into a concentration camp. In fact, it raises many questions and should be a caution to many!

  2. This is a story that needs to be read by everyone. None of us are safe from what Lori endured and her details the horrors we need to make sure that we avoid. While the world has never been a safe place to live, today’s trials seem a hundredfold worse.

  3. thank you all, the more people that get the word out about this book, the more people will hopefully educate and enlighten about subjects that are hard to deal with. I only want good things to come from this book. Including the charities that profits go to. Once more thank you for taking your time to comment.
    If anyone knows anyone who would like me to speak or do a signing or even want to buy the rights for the greater good 🙂 email me: lori@loris-song.com

  4. The world needs to be aware of the turbulence, women are subjected to, in Islamic countries. I cringe, when I hear uninformed women in the US, defending Islamic laws. They have no idea as to the atrocities that are being committed against women. This will be an eye opener to those less informed. I commend you for your courage, and strength. Thank you for enlightening the world.
    Do you ever speak to any groups? They need to hear the truth, especially, to those attending Universities, and Colleges. Blessings.

    • I’D LOVE TO SPEAK AT THOSE places unfortunately I don’t know how to go about setting it up. I’ve written my college and some others, but the only place I speak at is a rehab hospital once a month, and I LOVE THAT, and it really means a lot when people come up to me and tell me I’ve inspired or motivated or even touched them enough to change their views on life. Thank you, if you have any suggestions I have open ears 🙂
