In 1979, the Soviet Union blundered into Afghanistan, dragging the country into 30 years of war. A House White with Sorrow is a harrowing, elegiac story that conducts the reader on a tour of life during wartime. A tale of two cultures, two families, Afghan and American, and events that spawned the Taliban and shaped today’s tragic events.
