What emotions would you expect to feel upon returning to your family after six years in foreign detention? A mixture of relief and disbelief, probably.

And when the fear begins to subside and you finally have space to feel other emotions again — what then? I’d imagine anger, lots of it. Anger that you had lost six years of your life; anger that your husband had to go days without food to protest your imprisonment; anger that you have to “get to know” your little girl all over again.
