A Thousand Splendid Suns
by Khaled Hosseini
Author: Khaled Hosseini
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini is a heart-wrenching, brutally honest and yet touching story of a girl called Mariam who was married out of wedlock. Her embarrassing, shameful backstory caused her to be an outcast and thus safely hidden from society with her mother. After her mother's sudden death, Mariam is forced to be married to a man over 20 years her senior even though still under-aged. Years later after suffering a difficult, tiring life full of hardship, Mariam's life is changed when her life merges with a teenage orphan- Laila- living in the same area, leading to a close, unbreakable mother and daughter bond between them.

The novel is an amazing and incredible but painful read at the same time and will leave you in thought after possibly crying once you finish it. It makes you develop relationships with each character in the book and is based on history and real life.
So, will Miriam and Laila finally receive the lives and freedom they yearn for and deserve?
