Disc 2 of 3 (ending in 4072) is horribly scratched.

This story affirms my sense that children are often stronger, braver and more resilient than the adults in their lives. Perhaps it is because she hasn't lived long enough to be lose faith, and hope is the gift of the young. Regardless, this story introduced me to a world I did not know, which the best reason to read. Thumbs up for more stories featuring young heroines.

Awesome reading but I think the narrator should have some excitement compared to meera simhan, narrator of parvava's journey. My sister is 5 and she always begs me to turn it on.

This book is amazing, Although it is sad and very touching but it draws attention to the suffering of those who are under such an abusive rule. We are so blessed to live in such a freedom, this book made me appreciate it more and more and not take things for granted.What a brave girl and a woman.
