In a little beauty school in the war zone of Kabul, a community of women comes together, all with stories to tell. DEBBIE, the American hairdresser who co-founds the training salon. As the burqas are removed in class, curls are coiffed and make-up is applied, Debbie's students share with her their stories - and their hearts. MINA, forcibly married to a man in repayment of a family debt and threatened with having her child taken away. ROSHANNA, a tearful young bride terrified her in-laws will discover she's not a virgin. And NAHIDA, the prize pupil who bears the scars of her Taliban husband's approval. In the Kabul Beauty School, these women and many others find a safe haven and the seeds of their future independence. From the bestselling author of THE LITTLE COFFEE SHOP OF KABUL, this is an eye-opening, inspiring and enthralling story.
