Dressmaker of Khair Khana by Gayle Tzemach Lemmon

This is the story of a remarkable woman, Kamila Sidiqi, and how she not only survived the Taliban's occupation, but rose above the hardships to start a business, help support her family, offer classes in sewing to the neighborhood women, and become a community activist. She turned her biggest obstacles into opportunities for not only herself and family, but also to the women of Afghanistan.
