When the Taliban seized control of Kabul, they banished Kamila Sidiqi and other professional women to virtual house arrest. Fired from her teaching job, she faced another deep crisis when her father and brother fled the city, leaving her as the sole support of herself and her five siblings. With an aplomb that her country's self-righteous conquerors could never emulate, Kamila became the industrious dressmaker and home-bound businesswomen who fed the family and nurtured her embattled neighbors. This narrative by former ABC News reporter Gayle Tzemach Lemmon has already been compared to Greg Mortenson's Three Cups of Tea and William Kamkwamba's The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind.
