Summary
Zeba's life is shattered when her husband is found brutally murdered. Zeba is arrested and jailed. With the fate of Zeba's life in his hands, Afghan-born, American-raised Yusuf discovers that, like Afghanistan itself, his client may not be at all what he imagines. A moving look at the lives of modern Afghan women, this is astonishing, frightening, and triumphant. From the author of the bestselling "The Pearl That Broke Its Shell."
Summary
Accused by her in-laws and imprisoned for the brutal death of her husband, Zeba forges bonds with a group of women who have also been locked up for social violations and places her fate in the hands of an Afghan-born civil rights lawyer. Reading-group guide available online
