Summary
In Kabul, 2007, Rahima and her sisters only sporadically attend school and rarely leave the house. Their only hope lies in the ancient custom of bacha posh, which allows young Rahima to dress and be treated as a boy until she is of marriageable age. A century earlier, her great-aunt Shekiba, left orphaned by an epidemic, saved herself and built a new life the same way. Crisscrossing in time, the story interweaves the tales of these two women separated by a century who share similar destinies
