What We Say: In an extraordinary journey, a baby left alone in the sun eventually defied all odds to become Afghanistan's first female parliamentary speaker. Confronting the challenges of a tumultuous upbringing in the shadow of oppressive Russian and Taliban regimes, she navigated the loss of family members, emerging as a symbol of hope and inspiration. Her compelling story unfolds through intimate letters to her daughters, celebrating once-impossible milestones and envisioning a brighter world.

What They Say: “One of the country's most outspoken democracy activists... Koofi describes unflinchingly the wreckage she witnessed at the hands of Afghans of all ideologies and clans” - The Globe and Mail
