Life is hard, but Shahana ekes out a living with her beautiful embroidery. Then she finds a boy lying unconscious near the border.

'The explosion jolts him awake. He sits up, gasping for air, heart thumping.

'Was the blast real? Perhaps it had only happened in his head, a bad dream. Demons of the dark, his father had called them. 'Push them away. They'll only poison your thoughts. Seek the light and they can't hurt you.'

'Naveed is sick of war - of the foreign powers and the Taliban, the warlords and the drug barons that together have torn Afghanistan apart. He's had to grow up quickly to take care of his widowed mother and little sister, making what little money he can doing odd jobs and selling at the markets. When he adopts Nasera, a street dog with extraordinary abilities, he has a chance to help rebuild his country. But will a new friend's betrayal crush his dreams of peace forever?

'From the winter of war comes the spring of hope.' (Publication summary)

'When the soldiers came in the dead of night, Hasina's family fled in all directions. All Hasina remembers is picking up her baby brother and running deep into the forest.

She’s overjoyed to find her grandmother but there is no sign of Hasina's father and mother, her older brother and sister. As head of her household, Hasina must take care of her family. But how is anyone in the village to live when so many are gone? Who will work the fields and fish and feed them all? One thing Hasina knows—they will all need to work together to survive.'
