Latifa was born in Kabul in 1980 into an educated middle-class Afghan family, at once liberal and religious. As a teenager she was interested in fashion and cinema and going out with her friends, and she longed to become a journalist. Her mother, a doctor, and her father a businessman, encouraged her dreams. Then, in 1996, the Taliban seized power. From that moment, Latifa, sixteen years old, became a prisoner in her own home. Her school was closed. Her mother was banned from working. The simplest and most basic freedoms - walking down the street, looking out of a window - were no longer hers. She was now forced to cover herself entirely with a burqa. With painful honesty and clarify, Latifa describes how her world fell apart in the name of a fanatical interpretation of a faith

Nothing to lose by Christina Jones( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
Imagine that someone - in payment for a debt - gave you a greyhound. What would you do? April Padgett, single mum, decides that she will keep the dog, and what's more, that she will train and race him. There are a few snags - April has no money, she knows nothing about racing greyhounds, and her housing has a no-animals rule. But she has nothing to lose by trying her dog in a small local race. Imagine that you are left - in the will of a beloved but distinctly unrespectable relation - a bookmaker's pitch at a rundown greyhound stadium. What would you do? Jasmine Clegg, almost engaged to a suitable young man, decides to abandon a career with perks and take her place at the bookmaker's stand. She has nothing to lose - if she can work out the odds. Two women, two life-changing moments, totally unrelated. Or are they?

Painful memories begin closing in on Cass: the spectre of a secret that finally tore apart her damaged childhood and changed her life for ever. Soon, the growing sense that she is being stalked builds the whispering steam of disquiet into a wave that threatens to engulf her
