'Andrea Camuto's beautiful, haunting photographs chronicle the struggles
of Afghan refugees, particularly women, as they search for home in their
war-scarred homeland. Her lens brings home the enormous toll three
decades of upheaval have exacted on women and children. Her subjects are
mothers who live in fear, children who wander through abandoned
buildings and windy plains, the horizons of their lives tragically
shortened. It is there, on every page, brought gloriously to life: the
pain, the fear, the crushing despair, but also, the dim glints of hope,
the small moments of grace.'-Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner
