A powerful novel of enduring friendship set amid the terror and chaos of present-day Afghanistan.
Best friends Tamanna and Yasmine cannot believe their good fortune when a school is set up in their Afghan village; however, their dreams for the future are shattered when the Taliban burns down the school and threatens the teacher and students with death.
As Tamanna faces an arranged marriage to an older man and the Taliban targets Yasmine's western-educated family, the girls realize they must flee. Traveling through the heart of Taliban territory, the two unaccompanied young women find themselves in mortal danger. After suffering grave injuries, Tamanna from a fall and Yasmine from a suicide bombing, the girls are left without the one thing that has helped them survive -- each other.
Reunited years later in England, Tamanna and Yasmine discover that, despite the horrific events of the past, they are both driven to return home by memories of their families and a longing for their country.
The book features stunning photographs by award-winning photojournalist Rafal Gerszak ("The New York Times," "BBC World News") that bring readers an immediate sense of the faces and landscape of Afghanistan.
Filled with tension and drama, "Thunder Over Kandahar" paints a vivid portrait of the perils of contemporary Afghanistan.
