Book Review: A Cup of Friendship by Deborah Rodriguez
A Cup of Friendship: A Novel by Deborah Rodriguez
Sunny is an American who owns a coffee shop in Kabul. She is surrounded by a merging of the two worlds of Afganistan and America. She toes the line between following tradition and pushing forward, allowing her employees to live as they will.
A wonderful cast of characters comes and goes through the shop and we are lucky to get to know many of them. From a country widow to a glamorous British journalist. From a traditional Afghan man to the Americans men willing to risk their lives to save a young Afghan woman. You grow to love them all for their good qualities and want to help them overcome their faults.
An interesting look at Kabul through the eyes of an American living and working in the city, surrounded by her new friends and family.
