Professional reviews

"Little does anyone, including the slave master, realize how much Iqbal will change the situation of the child slaves when he enters the Pakistani carpet-making factory. There children sold into slavery to pay family debts work from dawn to dusk with little food or rest. Iqbal gives them hope and eventually helps to free them. He soon becomes an international hero, but, because he threatens the rich and powerful, he is murdered in 1995 by a mafia. Each character is sympathetically and realistically drawn in Christina Moore's humane presentation. Listeners will feel that they too are in the carpet factory. A compelling work, based on true events, is skillfully rendered with compassion and expertise. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
