From the twisted alleyways of the ancient medina of Fès to a marriage festival high in the Atlas Mountains, Deborah Rodriguez’s entrancing new bestseller is a modern story of forbidden love set in the sensual landscape of North Africa.
Deborah Rodriguez's bestselling novel about a little cafe in Kabul, and the five extraordinary women who meet there. A stirring portrait of a faraway place where—even in the fog of political and social conflict—friendship, passion, and hope still exist.
We return to the capital city of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and are reunited with the well-loved characters. However Sunny, the cafe's feisty and free-spirited former proprietor, is no longer to be found in her beloved Kabul. Escalating danger and unexpected tragedy have forced her from the city she thought she would never leave.
With warmth and humor, Rodriguez details the lushness of a seemingly desolate region and reveals the magnificence behind the burqa. A remarkable tale of women who come together and learn the arts of perms, friendship, and freedom.
(aka The Little House on Carnaval Street) Irreverent, insightful, and blatantly honest, Deborah takes us along on her inspiring journey of self-discovery after she is forced to flee Afghanistan in 2007. After being advised to sit in contemplation for one year and commune with glowworms, Rodriguez finally packs her life and her cat into her Mini Cooper and moves to a seaside town in Mexico.
