In the tradition of Dear Zari and Barefoot in Baghdad, Zen Under Fire lays bare the struggles of a war-torn region from a uniquely female perspective. Marianne Elliott must defuse situations before they lead to widespread bloodshed, despite the shattering effect that the high-stress environment has on her and her relationships--redefining the question of what it really means to do good in a country that is under siege from within. Zen Under Fire is an honest, moving, and at times terrifying true story of a woman's experience at peacekeeping in one of the most dangerous places on earth.
