The Long Road from Kandahar
DescriptionThe hand of friendship can span a thousand miles...
Among the almond orchards of the Swat Valley, Zamir tends goats with his son, Raza. He must make a heartbreaking decision if he is to protect his youngest child from the Taliban.
On a military base in Lashkar Gah, Ben lives on edge, wondering if his family will be the next to receive life-changing news from the front line.
And in a ramshackle house on the Cornish coast, Ben's mother Delphi, an artist, offers a refuge to her grandson Finn, as he retreats from the changes he senses in his family.
When Raza and Finn, two boys from impossibly different worlds, meet, they are united by their loneliness. But will their unexpected bond be enough to save not just each other, but also their families, just as all their lives are about to change forever?
'Interweave[ing] the devastation exacted by war on the lives of two boys... [this] blistering story shows how no one is remote, connecting rural Cornwall with the Swat Valley of Pakistan' Georgia Kaufmann, author of The Dressmaker of Paris
