n a little coffee shop in one of the most dangerous places on earth, five very different women come together.

SUNNY, the proud proprietor, who needs an ingenious plan - and fast - to keep her café and customers safe…

YAZMINA, a young pregnant woman stolen from her remote village and now abandoned on Kabul's violent streets …

CANDACE, a wealthy American who has finally left her husband for her Afghan lover, the enigmatic Wakil …

ISABEL, a determined journalist with a secret that might keep her from the biggest story of her life…

and HALAJAN, the sixty-year-old den mother, whose long-hidden love affair breaks all the rules.

As these five discover there's more to one another than meets the eye, they form a unique bond that will for ever change their lives and the lives of many others.

            This is a really great read. I felt like I knew all of the characters and I really wanted to call in to the shop and have a coffee with them. It is also very sad the way women are treated in that part of the world, I wish I could help them.
