“Written with sensitivity, The Drum Made from the Skin of My Sisters unmasks the brutal face of tribal Afghan and Iranian societies, where numerous citizens are enslaved, ignorant of their own potential or afraid to express it. Two young girls, considered women by their tribal societies, narrowly escape death. They gain strength and hope from a widow, still recovering from her own loss. Eveline Horelle Dailey’s courageous book captivates the heart, enriches the mind, and etches the soul.”

“Eveline Horelle Dailey has created a story of immense value, helping us to understand the plight of young women from distant and different cultures. The book is written in a personal and intimate way that goes far beyond describing the lives of two young girls from the Middle East. This author invites us to compare our lives with those of Saadia and Leila, as she intertwines the feelings of the widow from Maine who adopted them. This story does not stop with despair but instead shows the power of the human spirit. A must read.”
—Rose Winters - The Foundation for Living Medicine
“Eveline Horelle Dailey beautifully describes her feelings about women from a segment of society that for 3,000 years brought human rights, art, science, and banking systems to the world. Women who were proud, educated and free. These accomplishments and further advancements have been suppressed and replaced by laws imposed by various extremist leaders and dictators. With kindness, global thinking and compassion, Eveline has become a voice of expression for the women she calls her sisters.”
