Publisher's Summary

The honest, entertaining and life-affirming sequel to The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul, featuring the same loveable cast of characters, from internationally best-selling author Deborah Rodriguez.
In a little coffee shop in war-torn Kabul, five very different women unite for one important cause: to protect the women in Afghanistan. Now back home in the US, Sunny, the founder, is finding it difficult to settle and dreams of returning to her beloved coffee shop.
Shea is haunted by a traumatic event that makes her renounce her Afghan heritage. Yazmina, the coffee shop's new owner, wants to use her newfound security to help other women avoid the fate she narrowly escaped. Zara, promised in marriage to a violent man she's never met, arrives at the coffee shop seeking sanctuary. And Halajan, the grandmother still breaking all the rules, is secretly learning to drive....
Together, these five women set out to change their lives and the lives of women in Afghanistan forever.

A welcome catch up to the original book! :)

Read the original a couple years ago and a welcome return to catch up with lives of people that, while have never met, feel have known a lifetime! Laura, the reader, encouraged that feeling with her pleasant, gentle, sing song voice :)
