Maryam found a joy in the birth of a baby son. But then her brutal husband stole him away beyond his mother’s reach. For many long years she searched for her lost son, while civil war and Taliban oppression raged back home in Afghanistan.

Sob..sob.. baru habis baca, tak habis sedih lagi ni! :'(. Sedihnye la buku ni… sebab ia adalah true story, berakhir dengan kesedihan bukan happy ending. Saya dah baca banyak buku Jean Sasson, tapi inilah yang paling sedih! First buku saya baca bertajuk Princess. Lepas tu terus jatuh cinta dengan buku-buku dia. Kepada yang berminat, sila la dapatkan buku ini. Kat MPH saya pernah nampak. Murah je, dalam RM40-RM45 kot. Selamat membaca!
