Never have Aman and his mother needed a friend more than when a Springer Spaniel appears in the mouth of their Afghan cave. Nursed back to health by Aman, the dog becomes a constant companion, a shadow, and that's what Aman decides to call her. Shadow is lost while the family escapes Afghanistan to flee to England. Now they must depend on a friend and his grandfather to enable Shadow's return.
