    Abigail was the last keeper of the house, the last to know the Howland family's secrets. Now, in the name of all her brothers and sisters, she must take her bitter revenge on the small-minded Southern town that shamed them, persecuted them, but could never destroy them.

    Chimigi says: "very enjoyable"
    "Complex Story, Well-Narrated"
    Overall

    This book was a little slow at first and, at times, my attention wandered during the lengthy descriptions of scenery. However, the story does draw you in. It is not formulaic or predictable. The characters are complex and mysterious. The end was a bit unsatisfying only because I really wanted to know more. Finally, the book is read really, really well.

    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.
