Weighed down by guilt following the death of his two-year-old son, Mac McCann accepts a year-long position training police officers in Afghanistan. Leaving his wife Sophie to grieve alone, he hopes the life-or-death distractions of his self-imposed exile will build a wall between him and his pain.
As camaraderie builds between Mac and the men on base—including a local barber and his precocious little boy—Mac’s heart becomes invested in stories beyond his own tragedy and he learns he is not the only one running from loss. But when the hour of attack arrives, will he be able to see past his guilt to believe there’s still something—and someone—worth living for?
With touching details based on true events, Flowers from Afghanistan is a redemptive journey of healing, a chronicle of hope in crisis, and a testament to the faithfulness of God through it all.
Flowers from Afghanistan was a heartwarming, yet intense read. Suzy Parish does an amazing job writing from the male perspective. Mac’s character and his time in Afghanistan were truly believable. The story transported me to the military base where Mac was living, and I felt his emotions as if they were my own. I found myself rooting for him, worrying whenever danger was near, and cheering whenever he was able to get in touch with Sophie. The characters are realistic, flawed people, and give us hope to go on after tragedy strikes. Definitely recommend this read!

I would recommend Flowers from Afghanistan as a well written book that describes several interpersonal struggles. The descriptive writing succeeded in bringing me to a foreign country filled with conflict. Thank you for the wonderful book that touched my heart and strengthened my faith.
