5.0 out of 5 stars A colorful and captivating story, March 11, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Words In The Dust (Hardcover)
In his book "Words in the Dust," author Trent Reedy brings the distant land of Afghanistan to life through the story of a young teenage girl afflicted with the disfigurement a cleft lip, which creates an obstacle to finding a husband. Her struggles with coming of age while being tormented by her peers makes her real while drawing the reader into her culture and religion. Her story takes place during the American occupation in 2005 and depicts American soldiers as having good intentions while not always knowing local customs. This story educated me about Afghan culture, the struggle of women under Taliban rule and traditional Islam , with a few surprising twists along the way. I would recommend this book for young adults and older. I couldn't put it down!
