Two American sisters, Christine and Elizabeth Shepherd, are on a silk-buying trip in India for their business in California. After Elizabeth mysteriously disappears, Christine is compelled to challenge the ineffectual U.S. and Indian bureaucracies and venture alone, with various strangers as guides, to find her sister. Disguised in the traditional female garb of some Islamic cultures, Christine continues her search in Afghanistan and Pakistan. She navigates the mysterious tribes of the Pashtuns, has a dangerous encounter with the Taliban, and learns to fear the "Jinn", the devils that dominate the superstitions of the people she must understand in order to survive.
This audiobook is an especially personal production, based as it is on authentic research performed by Cheryl Howard Crew during visits to the region, produced with the creative consultation of the author’s husband, Academy Award winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind), and performed by their daughter, Golden Globe nominee Bryce Dallas Howard (As You Like It).”

Do Not Bother
THE best narration ever!
I've been listening to one or two books every month since 2002 and Bryce Howard does the most incredible narration I have ever heard. The story is also sooooo good! It's up their with The Help. Couldn't wait to listen and Did not want it to end! Highly recommend it.
