There is potentially such an interesting story in this book; however, the lack of focus and organization made it extremely difficult to understand the author's thought processes. Jone provides an interesting history to Afghanistan that is designed to provide evidence for the inevitable conflict that has plagued the country in recent decades, but the history is highly fragmented and jumps around too much without a clear thread. In addition, there is little relation between pages--for a few pages the author describes her visits to a women's prison, but then skips to another, seemingly unrelated topic, that doesn't enrich the previous information. I could only force myself through about 2/3 of the book.
