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.

Charunya ,

A thousand splendid suns

Movies have brought me to tears many times, but never has a novel- until I read ‘a thousand splendid suns’. It is a beautiful and heartbreaking masterpiece!

Gripping read of a sad tale

I really enjoyed reading this book, as sad as it was. Makes me so grateful for the life of freedom we live. My heart bleeds for women in the East who live such a life of oppression.
