Deborah Rodriguez is the author of the international bestsellers The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul, Return to the Little Coffee Shop of Kabul, The Zanzibar Wife and Island on the Edge of the World. She has also written two memoirs: The Kabul Beauty School, about her life in Afghanistan, and The House on Carnaval Street, on her experiences following her return to America. Deborah is the founder of the nonprofit organization Oasis Rescue, which aims to teach women in post-conflict and disaster-stricken areas the art of hairdressing.
The Moroccan Daughter is an utterly irresistible story of modern love, family, identity and celebrating our differences. The story begins with Amina Bennis returning to her childhood home in Morocco to attend her sister’s wedding. Unbeknownst to her family, she lives a life in complete contrast to them and has married an American named Max without the blessing of her strict traditionalist father.
Deborah Rodriguez is presented by Maitland Libraries in collaboration with NSW Public Libraries
