One thing about fiction, even though it's not a true story, it "could be" true. There were thousands of individual experiences before, during and after 9/11. It's impossible to know how the events of that day affected different people, but the book "Palpalble Passions" by Tom Corbett does a great job of doing just that. Two families, one born to privilege in America and the other struggling under the oppressive Taliban regime in Kabul, confront the demons and challenges of their separate worlds. Circumstances and serendipity bring the two together in the Panjshir Valley of northern Afghanistan just as Osama Bin Ladin strikes New York and Washington. Their unanticipated connection offers each an opportunity to discover renewed hope. From black despair, each finds a path toward achieving personal passions that they can literally feel, passions they had once thought were beyond their grasp.
