A Thousand Splendid Suns – Khaled Hossieni

A_Thousand_Splendid_SunsREAD FOR BOOKCLUB

Chosen by Jo

Written from the perspective of Afghan women trapped within their country’s strict regime, this book focuses on the friendship between Mariam and Laila who are wives of the same man.

✎ “Harrowing but addictive. You need to be ready for a book like this – the abuse, oppression and war will shed a few tears – but at the heart of the story are two feisty, inspirational women who evoke a sense of hope and heroism. If you do decide to proceed, you won’t regret it.” – Rachel
