The Parwan Wind Dust Motes
In response to the complaints of readers that The Gun Tree was too short and didn't tell the full story, this follow up is the inevitable answer. In The Parwan Wind the author attempted to fill in some of the gaps plus bring the story of her former 'brothers in arms' up to date. The ever changing political situation, combined with personal reasons, did not allow her to return there until the spring of 2004. The author returned to a completely different Afghanistan than she had found in 1983. Visiting Kabul for the first time came as a shock, and meeting and discussing the outcome of 23 years of war with former Mujahideen was a revelation indeed. The changes in custom, culture and expectations were sadly fascinating. The author has endeavoured to portray the harsh outcomes and realities of war in these pages.
