The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul

by Deborah Rodriguez

Sunny, an American, owns and runs a coffee shop in Kabul. The novel is predominately concerned with the lives and loves of the owner, her staff and friends. Political corruption, terrorist attacks, the treatment of women and the drug trade are also touched on. An interesting mix of both local and international characters delivers a feel-good read with a happy ending.

Extract

The coffee shop was jammed with regulars - misfits, missionaries and mercenaries, Afghans and foreigners - and Sunny, as usual, was at the counter. She surveyed her domain, pleased with the business, the buzz, the life that pulsated in the room. This was her very own place, here, in the middle of a war zone, in one of the most dangerous locations on earth.
