Wow, what a journey I have had the privilege of undergoing for the past 2.5 days!!!!! I couldn't put it down - it's AMAZING. It's amazing bc I was enthralled by the danger, the exhaustive daily plot of the characters, their own journey. I willed them on with my own cheering and cried when they cried. It's powerful. It's beautifully written. Judith Montgomery is a debut author who has an extraordinary voice that needs to be heard. On behalf of the people of Afghanistan - this story is told.

Wonderful!! I started to read and could not put this book down!! It has an amazing plot filled with thrilling experiences, extraordinary courage on the part of the Afghan citizens and dramatic interaction between friends and strangers alike. The story is extremely well written and the high level of adventure is compelling and believable as the mystery and suspense accelerates and is interwoven from chapter to chapter. This author certainly is able to bring the reader into an era of turmoil for Afghanistan. I highly recommend this book to any and all who want to travel back to a real time with real threats, sorrows and drive on the part of citizens who only wish to resume their normal lives. It is teriffic!! I loved this book. Thank you Ms. Montgomery for sharing your story. It is one that has to be told and you did it.

In the 1970s, Afghanistan was in political turmoil. Communist Russia had a tenuous hold on the country while various factions, including the religious, fought tooth and nail to overthrow the regime and establish their own government and way of life. One faction strove to establish a system of freedom and growth; a system that would attract all of the expatriates back home to a life not known for over a century. This faction centered on a lofty idealist named Aziz Rashani who by day was a successful restaurant owner and by night, the brains behind a rebel force gearing up to stage a revolution on the next holiday season. That is, until Aziz's path crossed that of an American teacher looking for a new and exciting life in the dangerous, yet mysterious, Middle East. Jenna Lantz gets caught in the cross fire of a small Afghani town and stumbles into the heart of Aziz in the process. Now Aziz is left with a painful choice. Does he remain loyal to the country he loves or does he leave everything he holds dear behind to live out the rest of his life with the woman he loves. Aksandar is a very enlightening historical fiction. So much of the history of the countries in the middle east are so jumbled and confusing, yet Aksandar provides a clear snapshot of the political landscape that led to the theocracy that ultimately flew plans into buildings half way across the globe. The back of the book claims that "Aksandar is a quest for truth and justice." Judith Montgomery certainly has declared her own Aksandar with the writing of this book.
