There is so much that I wanted to say about this book but I will try to stay on point and be brief Sort of.This is the first I ve read of Nadia Hashimi and I found it to be simply but elegantly written In certain places the emotion leaps right off the page and manages to pack a bigger a punch with fewer words Descriptions of countries and living conditions are succinct and clear I find this to beaengaging style for me than something with long, flowery prose or extensive descripti There is so much that I wanted to say about this book but I will try to stay on point and be brief Sort of.This is the first I ve read of Nadia Hashimi and I found it to be simply but elegantly written In certain places the emotion leaps right off the page and manages to pack a bigger a punch with fewer words Descriptions of countries and living conditions are succinct and clear I find this to beaengaging style for me than something with long, flowery prose or extensive descriptions of the landscape This story is about a woman who is fleeing Afgha
