In this gripping biographical narrative, Victoria Noorzai tells the story of how worlds and cultures collide. Her Russian mother and Afghan father had to fight the societal norms of the Soviet Union in order to marry. When they finally began to build a life for themselves together with their family in Afghanistan, political turmoil and unrest were their constant companions. This compelled Victoria and her brother to seek education elsewhere, moving them far from everything that was once familiar. While circumstances may have driven relocation to different countries, cultures, and even continents, all in all, this book is about family.
