Deeba first left Afghanistan in 2002, fleeing a war torn country and an abusive husband shortly after she was captured by the Taliban and nearly sold to an Arab Shaikh narrowly escaping due to a small twist of fate.

In June 2021 Deeba returned to visit family in Kabul to organise the engagement of her son. Regardless of the Taliban's progress she felt safe to travel after reassurances from the Aghan and US Government's that the Taliban would not be able to take major cities.

One morning, to her surprise, she awoke to the news that President Ghani had escaped and Kabul was in the hands of the Taliban, what ensued was a desperate rush to leave the city to return to the USA enduring bomb blasts and crushing crowds at the airport.

This is a harrowing account of one woman caught in the US withdrawal of Kabul giving a first hand account of what it was like to be a civilian caught up in the chaos as well as giving an invaluable insight in to the life of a woman in Afghanistan.
