'Hosseini has done it again ... A Thousand Splendid Suns is a triumph. In Khaled Hosseini, Afghanistan has at last found a voice' - The Financial Times
Mariam is only fifteen when she is sent to Kabul to marry Rasheed. Nearly two decades later, a friendship grows between Mariam and a local teenager, Laila, as strong as the ties between mother and daughter.
When the Taliban take over, life becomes a desperate struggle against starvation, brutality and fear.
Yet love can move a person to act in unexpected ways, and lead them to overcome the most daunting obstacles with a startling heroism.
Our favourite quote: 'He could find hatred in his heart for her, too, if he went looking for it. The secret of a happy marriage was not to go looking for it.'
