Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read this book twice the first day it arrived. It's a captivating and painful, joyous and erotic look into what's going on in the hearts of Afghan women behind their veils and burkas. Through their poetic words and vehement cries in ages old form, the reader gains a fuller understanding of their conflicted strength persevering despite the difficult circumstances of their lives. I highly recommend this book.
