    Great read

    This was another great read by Nadia Hashimi. I really enjoyed the story and learning about the characters. There was enough of a mystery to really keep you reading. Perhaps the ending is a bit unrealistic for most situations but it was a satisfying ending nonetheless.

    As always a wonderful book.

    A story to make us truly grateful for the blessed lives we live and to pray for our sisters who live in such fear each day. I hope this author will continue to write books that keep these stories alive.

    A House Without Windows

    BRILLIANT! An unforgetable story of integrity and courage!! Having been born and raised in Canada, I can't imagine living in such a patriarchal society with so little regard for women. Thank God things are changing!

    Don't miss this one

    If Nadia Hashimi and Khaled Hosseini ever decide to collaborate on a book or a series of books about Afghanistan, I would donate many reading hours to soak up every beautiful word. Both authors possess the gift of creating characters that I find difficult to leave once I've turned the last page. In " A House Without Windows", Nadia Hashimi takes readers to a woman's prison in Afghanistan and examines the way in which justice works in that country after the Taliban has been pushed back by western troops. Our main character is Zeba, a mother of four, awaiting trial, accused of the brutal killing of her husband. Enter Yusef, the Afghan-American, an idealistic lawyer who returns to the land of his youth and is chosen to defend Zeba. The problem soon arises that Yusef cannot appear to build a case and his client isn't really willing to help him out. "A House Without Windows" examines the plight of Afghanistan's women as their fates straddle the link between their country's traditional beliefs and a new world. Like Yusef, I felt frustration at the way in which things were, but I could also understand the realities of what these women face in the justice system. As one character laments later "How the world would be different if a woman could judge." Definitely not a story to be missed! Our world is the spaces between the rocks and meat. We see the face that should but doesn't smile, the silver of sun between dead tree branches. Time passes differently through a woman's body. We are haunted by all the hours of yesterday and teased by a few moments of tomorrow. That is how we live------ torn between what has already happened and what is yet to come.

    So different from my usual reads

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. My first read relating to women being quashed by men and their religious beliefs. Great read. Couldn't put it down.
