    Born a generation apart and with very different ideas about love and family, Mariam and Laila are two women brought jarringly together by war, by loss, and by fate. As they endure the ever escalating dangers around them, in their home as well as in the streets of Kabul, they come to form a bond that makes them both sisters and mother-daughter to each other, and that will ultimately alter the course not just of their own lives but of the next generation.

    David says: "Somber but gripping"
    "Heartbreaking & Hopeful"
    Overall

    As with "The Kite Runner", this book is beautiful and unrelenting in the heartbreak it delivers. It is difficult to listen to and impossible to turn off. The author does an incredible job of making personal and real the toll of war and provides some context for our own nation's current involvements in Afghanistan.
