Daughter of the Wind

By Suzanne Fisher Staples

Twelve-year-old Shabanu lives in the desert in Pakistan. She is already engaged but dreams of independence, and after tragedy strikes, she must choose which path to take.

Twelve-year-old Shabanu lives with her family in Pakistan's Cholistan Desert, in a society that denies women any form of independence. She is already betrothed, while her sister Phulan, a year older, is about to be married. After tragedy strikes, Shabanu is faced with a life changing decision – she must choose between pursuing the freedom she's always longed for and following the traditions of her family and culture.

'A very thought-provoking read.' Education Otherwise

'Outstanding... An enthralling and well-sustained plot, featuring dust storms and desert rangers, casually vindictive oppression, murder and tribal skulduggery.' The Independent

'"A small miracle ... touching and powerful."' New York Times
