A CUP OF FRIENDSHIP by Deborah Rodriguez

Publisher Random House, January 25, 2011

From the author of the "big-hearted...inspiring" (Vogue) New York Times bestseller Kabul Beauty School comes a fiction debut as compelling as real life: the story of a remarkable coffee shop in the heart of Kabul, and the women who meet there--each with a story and a secret that will lead them all to an extraordinary friendship.

Sunny is an energetic American living in Kabul, whose pride and joy is the coffee shop she runs for expats--and their stories that filter through her daily life. Yazmina is a young woman from a remote village; when she's kidnapped and left on a city street, pregnant and alone, Sunny gives her a home--but all Yazmina wants is to find a way to rescue her sister from the same fate. Into the coffee shop--and Yazmina's and Sunny's lives--come Candace, a wealthy American looking for a way to help but who ends up needing help herself; Isabel, a determined journalist whose past secret might keep her from the biggest story of her life; and Halajan, the den mother whose long-hidden love affair breaks all the rules--and threatens to turn her own son against her. As these women gather together and discover that there's more to one another than meets the eye, they'll form a bond that will change not only their lives, but the lives of an entire country.
