Under an Afghan Sky by Mellissa Fung


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.
