Summary

An ugly, inhuman, act like forced marriage has been practiced throughout history for centuries in one way or another; men and women, especially women, were forced into marriages by their parents, guardians, authorities, or rulers for various reasons, and they went through inexplicable sufferings. Forced marriage is still a big issue even in this 21st century when we consider ourselves the most developed species on earth; it is happening all over the world.

This compelling documentary-novel The Auction deeply examines the ignorance and dark practices in our society that are responsible for forced marriages and the great sufferings of its victims. It is a novel with an emotional power that expressively portrays human sufferings caused by many harmful cultural, traditional, religious and social practices. 

It is a blood-chilling thriller based on a true story of a young British-Asian woman who was forced into marriage.
