And The Mountains Echoed

Khaled Hosseini

Ten-year-old Abdullah would do anything for his younger sister. In a life of poverty and struggle, with no mother to care for them, Pari is the only person who brings Abdullah happiness. For her, he will trade his only pair of shoes to give her a feather for her treasured collection. When their father sets off with Pari across the desert to Kabul in search of work, Abdullah is determined not to be separated from her. Neither brother nor sister know what this fateful journey will bring them. And the Mountains Echoed is a deeply moving epic of heartache, hope and, above all, the unbreakable bonds of love.

Khaled Hosseini has done it again. Another stunner of a novel from the man who brought us The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns. The story of Pari and her devoted brother Abdullah, their harsh but happy life in an isolated Afghan village, and what fate has in store for them, is beautifully, hauntingly written. A profoundly moving and deeply rewarding story.
