In the Land of Blue Burqas

In the Land of Blue Burqas - Kate McCord A very worthwhile read. The author writes from her years living among the Afghani people and learning their culture as well as their struggles and sorrows. Living as a single middle-aged Christian women in a Muslim culture, she had a fascinating opportunity to talk with and live among Afthani women and hear their stories. She writes very simply but with great respect for the crushing hardship these people live under while speaking to them about the Honorable Jesus Messiah, whom she follows.
