LA PRIMERA ESTRELLA DE LA NOCHE
The fictionalized testimony of the suffering and hope of the women in the author’s afghan family, of her roots and the intention of breaking loose from formalities, prove an admirable strength.
Going back to her native Afghanistan, where Nadia is hoping to find her cousin Mersal and honor her deceased aunt, she will discover the hidden story of the women in her family, of their roots and of herself as a woman.
The first star in the night is a story of search, of family revelations, of questions that were left unanswered and most of all, a story that shows the reality women live in societies so distant from our own: how they overcome adversity and don’t stay impassive when facing a destiny that’s supposedly inalterable.
Unforgettable, intense, genuine and touching, this is a story with which the reader will instinctively dive into the day to day of afghan society, their life, and these brave and tenacious women’s feelings and in the adventures of the main character, Nadia Ghulam.
A story that will teach us about home and that leaves its mark.
