Ariana Delawari is a strong-voiced narrator for this memoir by Afghanistan's first female mayor. Delawari is measured, precise, and deliberate in her delivery of Zarifa Ghafari's story. Delawari transmits the pain Ghafari endured and the grit she exhibited in the face of no less than six attempts on her life, along with the murder of her father, as a consequence of her taking office. This audiobook is an up-close-and-personal yet sweeping look at a generation of women's experiences in Afghanistan. Delawari recounts Ghafari's childhood under the Taliban regime, the war-torn years that followed, and the brief taste of change. She captures the nostalgia and loss that are interwoven through Ghafari's exile since the Taliban have regained power. This is a timely memoir with far-reaching impact.
