State Literary Award 2014 Shortlist . Civil wars can go on decades, but when they do come to an end they are like thieves in the night. They just end, leaving entire generations of people orphaned, confused and traumatized. Everyone talks about the death tolls, the war crimes, the winners and the losers, the heroes and the fallen villains. But nobody talks about that invisible third party: the children. The Terrorist's Daughter is the story of those invisible children.
