With heart-wrenching power and suspense, the bestselling author of "The Kite Runner" shows how a woman''s love for her family can move her to shocking and heroic acts of self-sacrifice, and that in the end it is love that is often the key to survival.
From the Publisher:
An illustrated rerelease of the best-selling work is a tale of family, friendship and faith as shaped by 30 years of Afghan history, in a volume that features expressive photographs of cultural life. By the best-selling author of The Kite Runner.
Annotation:
Khaled Hosseini's bestselling debut novel THE KITE RUNNER told of the bond and betrayal that linked two young Afghani boys, and showed how their personal and political history affected their lives and the lives of their children. In his second novel A THOUSAND SPLENDID SUNS Hosseini shows the tenuous alliance made between two Afghan women who are both married to the same brutal older man. Miriam, an illegitimate daughter, is 15 when she is married to Rasheed. Years later he takes another wife, the orphaned 14-year old Laila. Together, the two women, subjugated by culture and circumstance, must find a way to survive and protect that most-precious of commodities: hope.

Praise
