The Revolutionary’s Cousin

(1 customer review)

Zahra Ghafoori, an Afghan widow with a troubled past, lives in Tehran, Iran. She is planning to leave Iran for the USA with her fiancé, wealthy architect Karim Konari, and her son Ahmad. The dramatic reappearance of her revolutionary cousin Firzun, whom she believed dead in a bomb blast, changes everything.

Karim’s life takes a different path as he leaves alone for the USA, after Firzan forces Zahra to travel with him to Australia, then abandons her and Ahmad at the airport. Humiliated, alone, and frightened in a country very different to her own, Zahra must overcome many ordeals and try to make friends and a new life. Will Firzun come back for her? And will she ever see Karim again?

  1. Carole Jackson

    An excellent sequel to Cindy’s first novel, The Afghan Wife, following Zahra’s tumultuous life from Tehran to Australia, along with Karim’s fast-paced and intriguing life in the US. An easy read and exciting it was hard to put down. Cindy’s knowledge of the middle eastern culture makes this book so much more interesting than just a romantic thriller. Hoping there will be a ‘three-quel’ perhaps!
