The honest, entertaining and life-affirming sequel to The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul , featuring the same loveable cast of characters, from internationally bestselling author Deborah Rodriguez. In a little coffee shop in war-torn Kabul, five very different women unite for one important cause: to protect the women in Afghanistan. Now back home in the US, SUNNY , the founder, is finding it difficult to settle and dreams of returning to her beloved coffee shop. SHEA is haunted by a traumatic event that makes her renounce her Afghan heritage. YAZMINA , the coffee shop's new owner, wants to use her newfound security to help other women avoid the fate she narrowly escaped. ZARA , promised in marriage to a violent man she's never met, arrives at the coffee shop seeking sanctuary. And HALAJAN , the grandmother still breaking all the rules, is secretly learning to drive . . . Together, these five women set out to change their lives, and the lives of women in Afghanistan, for ever.
