I have heard a lot about The Dressmaker of Khair Khana by Gayle Tzenach Lemmon and am really looking forward to reading it.
I like this opening line because I immediately know she is educated at some level. For a woman in Afghanistan, that's a great thing. I am almost half way into the book and feel like it needs to get to the meat of the matter (i.e., being dressmakers)
