Satwant Kaur was just seventeen years old, when she was abducted by the Mughals and brought to Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan. Shadowed by misfortune, she was sold as a slave to a Pathan household. Separated from her loved ones and tormented by strangers, she found the strength to open her heart to the suffering of others. No longer a young, helpless Sikh girl, Satwant forged new friendships and cut down those who threatened to stand in her way.
A caravan was on its way to Punjab, and it was Satwant’s only chance to return home to her family. Pursued by the evil Amir of Kabul and burdened by the pain of her mistress Fatima, Satwant faced the most dreaded moments of her life. Her faith in God and the teachings of the Sikh faith propelled her forward. However, when she met Agha Khan, a handsome young Pathan officer, the road to freedom took an unexpected turn.
Inspired by Bhai Vir Singh’s Punjabi novel, Satwant Kaur, this is the story of a young girl’s determination to survive in an alien land. Satwant would never desert her friends even if it meant sacrificing her own life.
