Through Our Bodies, Their Battlefield, award-winning reporter Christina Lamb exposes the immense suffering and bravery of the women who experience war, uncovering incredible stories of heroism and resistance in the face of persecution and sexual violence. In Guest House for Young Widows, journalist Azadeh Moaveni takes us into the school hallways of London, to kitchen tables in Germany and to coffee shops in Tunis, to share her complex and intimate account of those who made a shocking decision: to leave their lives behind and join the Islamic State. They talk to Manveen Rana of The Times about a cast of unforgettable women who, by choice or by circumstance, have become entangled in conflict.
