And Then Came Spring
Growing up in Kabul 14-year Nazanin always dreamt of going to school. But her father Ghulam, a lay-about addicted to gambling and heroine, sent her to work in a carpet shop instead while her younger sister, the spirited 8-year-old Laily, scavenges the streets and hustles for a living. The girls dream of the day when everything would be different. Instead, their father sells Nazanin to Sarwar Khan to settle his debts and Nazanin finds herself married to a man twice her age. She soon finds herself pregnant but when her husband finds out the child is a girl he is infuriated, and his decision sets off a chain of events that changes everyone’s lives forever.
