Celebrating Deborah Rodriguez's international bestseller – now reissued in a special 10th anniversary edition!

This special edition includes exclusive new author content.

One little café. Five extraordinary women . . .

In a little coffee shop in one of the most dangerous places on earth, five very different women come together.

Sunny, the proud proprietor, who needs an ingenious plan – and fast – to keep her café and customers safe . . .

Yazmina, a young pregnant woman stolen from her remote village and now abandoned on Kabul's violent streets . . .

Candace, a wealthy American who has finally left her husband for her Afghan lover, the enigmatic Wakil . . .

Isabel, a determined journalist with a secret that might keep her from the biggest story of her life . . .

And Halajan, the sixty-year-old den mother, whose long-hidden love affair breaks all the rules.

As these five discover there's more to one another than meets the eye, they form a unique bond that will for ever change their lives and the lives of many others.
