  • Description
    Afghan-American Nadia Hashimi's literary debut novel is a searing tale of powerlessness, fate, and the freedom to control one's own fate that combines the cultural flavor and emotional resonance of the works of Khaled Hosseini, Jhumpa Lahiri, and Lisa See. In Kabul, 2007, with a drug-addicted father and no brothers, Rahima and her sisters can only sporadically attend school, and can 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. As a son, she can attend school, go to the market, and chaperone her older sisters. But Rahima is not the first in her family to adopt this unusual custom. A century earlier, her great-great grandmother, Shekiba, left orphaned by an epidemic, saved herself and built a new life the same way. Crisscrossing in time, The Pearl the Broke Its Shell interweaves the tales of these two women separated by a century who share similar destinies. But what will happen once Rahima is of marriageable age? Will Shekiba always live as a man? And if Rahima cannot adapt to life as a bride, how will she survive?

    Worth every penny

    The author has made a great effort in showing us the struggles of a woman's life. This is not what used to happen years ago, but still happens. Nadia Hashimi has portrayed the various stages of a woman's life. A must read!

    Simply awesome

    I couldn't believe ,this was a debut novel. An amazing story teller. The book gives an insight to the Bacha posh culture in Afghanistan and the deprivation of women not only by men but also by other women of the family. The gender bias since past to present. The story is a contemporary fiction crisscrossed on historical facts.
