I don't think I've ever been moved, as I have here, by any other work of non-fiction. This was astounding. I've never been so inspired by another person's strength and faith. Indeed, Fung embodies a rare sense of resilience that I can only admire. She never wavers from her true self. All the time that she was kidnapped, she maintains her dignity, her composure, and most impressively: her faith. I can't recommend this book enough to any Canadian. It helped me understand the Afghan conflict in a way I had never imagined.
