The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul - Deborah Rodriguez

"The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul" is the story of five women who meet in the titular coffee shop in Kabul, Afganistan.  Each of the five women have their own story to share and secret to hide.  A bond grows between the women as the story progresses and dangerous secrets are revealed.

Much has been made of Deborah Rodriguez's ability to paint a realistic and vivid picture of a city and culture most of us have heard little about.  Having lived in the city and even owned a coffee shop there for years gives a lot of credence to the descriptions and events she depicts.

Published just this year, "The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul" is already a very popular choice amongst our book club groups.  Feel free to add your own comments on the book below.  (Available as a Book Club Set)
