The Pearl That Broke Its Shell
by Nadia Hashimi
Outstanding. Just totally outstanding. Fans of Khaled Hosseini’s Kite Runner & A Thousand Splendid Suns will love this one, perhaps even MORE. I will be honest – I almost quit. I had a really hard time dealing with the way women/girls are treated in this book. I am glad I didn’t stop. These are some amazing people & amazing stories. And who knows – perhaps they were inspired by true stories? We will never know.
