My Afghan Sojourn

Rating
Needing to put distance between herself and a failed relationship, Sara volunteers for a medical mission in a remote region of Afghanistan. There the young American quickly proves her worth, helping deliver babies, tend sick children, and lance boils. It's grueling work, but also rewarding. Sara feels like she's making a difference. On a rare day off, the medical team hikes into the mountains for some much-needed rest and recreation-only to stumble onto a battle between American forces and Afghani insurgents. In the chaos, all but Sara die.Alone and injured in the dry ravines of the Hindu Kush, Sara survives five agonizing days of thirst and pain until a nomadic tribe saves her. Suffering from amnesia resulting from her ordeal, Sara's identity is a mystery, but her medical skills quickly make her a valued member of the small family group.While tending an insurgent injured after being forced to fight for the Taliban, Sara finds herself developing feelings for her patient-emotions he willingly returns. Their love blossoms, despite the gulf that lies between their worlds.A stirring tale set in the Afghani conflict, My Afghan Sojourn explores the common bonds and emotions that transcend warring cultures.
