Publisher Description

Deborah Rodriguez's international bestselling book about a little cafe in Kabul, and the five extraordinary women who meet there, has moved readers around the world and become a word-of-mouth favourite among book clubs.

In 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.

“With a message…to protect and empower the women of Kabul, Rodriguez weaves her tale of life, death, and marriage…Readers will appreciate the in-depth, sensory descriptions of this oft-mentioned and faraway place that most have never seen.”
- Booklist

“Rodriguez paints a vivid picture of Afghan culture… as if Maeve Binchy had written The Kite Runner.”
