Zakia and Ali were from different tribes, but grew up on neighboring farms in the hinterlands of Afghanistan. Separated by custom at puberty, they fell in love from afar. Defying family, cultural convention, and Islamic law, the two lovers eloped and, pursued by Zakia's family, went into hiding. A harrowing, eye-opening story of one couple's unshakable self-determination, The Lovers puts a face on the debate about women's rights in the fundamentalist Muslim world.
