opportunity New YorkDaily News Endearingly frankinspirational and engaging The Washington Post Fascinatinglively and honest USA Today From the Hardcover edition.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 caf 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

women discover there sto one another than meets the eye, they form a unique bond that will for ever change their lives and the lives of many others The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul is the heart warming and life affirming fiction debut from the author of the bestselling memoir The Kabul Beauty School. This is not a bad novel per se The writing is workman like with characters that are well defined although overly exaggerated and one dimension There were too many unnecessary romantic twists for me I m not sure what I was expecting but I never understood why this woman would stay in a city that was so dangerous.Also, their is a point at which a character makes an abrupt about face that I felt was unrealistic Something nagged at me the whole time I was reading this but I can t really define it except to say that something was just missing. A WONDERFUL BOOK AND TOUCHES ON THE LIVES OF THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE AND LOVE IN KABUL EVEN THOUGH MANY ARE FROM OTHER COUNTRIES IT IS FICTION, BUT IT GIVES GREAT INSIGHT INTO THE CRUEL WAY WOMEN ARE ACTUALLY TREATED IN THAT COUNTRY MAKES YOU SEE HOW PEOPLE TAKE WHAT LITTLE THEY HAVE TO WORK WITH TO MAKE A LIVING FOR THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILIES. In the news all the time we hear about Afghanistan, but this book takes you to the daily life in Kabul I felt the differences with the old and new ways and yet how different the customs and way of life are.Customs are so different in different countries and ethnic groups and this book shows and teaches us that just because it s different doesn t make it wrong Also that interpretation of religions can be very different as well We all tend to see and hear about the radicals, whether right or left, and forget that most of the people are in the middle.The story is very good, but very predictable But still a good read. There have been many stories about the Afghan culture, but this one touched a nerve It clearly portrays that culture in a state of the struggle and transition As with all modern religions, Islam is many faceted both the good and the evil in the name of Allah This book portrays the struggle between the old customs and, hopefully, the emerging new customs that free women while maintaining the afghan way. This little story is one that I am happy I read A story of a women from the Midwest moving to Kabul and opening a coffee shop Merging friends from the east and west while following their lives It will make you smile and it will make you cry and it will break your heart at some point It will also lift your spirits while watching this unconventional family celebrate life, death and growing with each other
