I read Shades of Dignity, the story of Parwen, her family and friends, with great interest. It is a touching story with many great insights into Afghan culture, the country, its conflicts, human relationships and the courage of characters facing harsh circumstances. It is a story of survival, hope and love and offers observations on human rights abuses, redemption, reconciliation and dignity.
This touching story examines themes of love and loss, family ties, Afghan culture, and the struggles of Afghan emigrants to assimilate into other cultures. Readers interested in Afghan culture will certainly find this to be an interesting book.
