Ariana Delawari is a strong, determined voice for this memoir by Homeira Qaderi, who writes about growing up in wartime Afghanistan and about being pregnant and giving birth under the Taliban. She is unflinching in her descriptions of this painful journey, which begins when she is a child. When she grows up, she becomes pregnant, struggles to safely give birth, and then is separated from her child by politics and oceans. Delawari deftly pronounces the many Afghani names of people and places. This is a story of courage, a gripping tale told by a woman who is determined to never forget. Delawari helps us bear witness to the needless suffering of Afghani women living under a harsh regime. M.R. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
