I got Farad's book because we have been working in relief and development in Afghanistan since 1984. It is a sad but uplifting account of the suffering of a child and of people who come into our lives and believe in us, love us and walk with us through the difficulties of life in Afghanistan, Pakistan and in America.
Farad, a young, Hazara girl, has lived an unbelievable life before reaching the age of 15. Her story is a first-hand picture of the devastation of a beautiful country destroyed by war and ethnic conflict. She and her family were caught in the middle. She stepped on a landmine as she was going to school in Kabul. She was in the second grade and things went downhill from there.
This is a story of suffering and pain but also of finding strength to respond when it seemed impossible. This is a story of faith and people practically living out their faith. It is the story of a young girl who has a dream and who is on her way to fulfilling it.
