Review: This is the story about two Afghani women, Mariam and Laila. They are born a generation apart but finds their lives interwoven with each other. I am the same age as Laila and it was just shocking comparing my privileged American childhood with hers. While one of the most depressing books I've ever read, it was also one of my top reads for 2020. It's harrowing, beautiful, heart wrenching, depressing with a dash of hope. Highly recommend for all women to read this.
