Summary
Two women born a generation apart witness the destruction of their home and family in wartorn Kabul, and the losses incurred over the course of thirty years test the limits of their strength and courage
Summary
A breathtaking story set against the volatile events of Afghanistan's last thirty years-from the Soviet invasion to the reign of the Taliban to post-Taliban rebuilding that puts the violence, fear, hope and faith of this country in intimate, human terms. It is a tale of two generations of characters brought jarringly together by the tragic sweep of war, where personal lives-the struggle to survive, raise a family, find happiness-are inextricable from the history playing out around them
