WOW and Whoa! And that’s not just a state­ment about the story, which was won­der­ful. Rather that refers to all the fid­dly bits at the back that I never usu­ally read.

It’s for the story be­hind the story, and the sto­ries that I will now go out and buy, but I di­gress.

Have you read The Kite Run­ner, and were you amazed at the won­der­ful world that fell prey to such tyranny and fear? Did you feel for the people, their tales, lives and laugh­ter?

This will hit you in the same spot, but it will leave you with hope at the end.

It’s just a lit­tle cof­fee shop in Kabul, as well as the lives of the staff, the owner and the cus­tomers; but it pieces to­gether strength and char­ac­ter, cul­ture and phi­los­o­phy in such a palat­able form that the story will be over be­fore you know it.

A tale of five ex­tra­or­di­nary women in a most dan­ger­ous and beau­ti­ful place, The Lit­tle Cof­fee Shop of Kabul is a book that will stay with me for some time, and for all the right rea­sons. + Get your dis­counted copy of The Lit­tle Cof­fee Shop of Kabul us­ing the coupon be­low
