A Thousand Splendid Suns, the spectacular second novel by Khaled Hosseini, follows on the heels of The Kite Runner, Hosseini's best-selling first novel. This book tells the dramatic story of an unlikely friendship between two women, Mariam and Laila, who are married to the same man. The story takes us through each of their lives before the Russians enter Afghanistan, into the horrible years of Taliban rule, and beyond. Watching these women grow in their relationship, we are given a picture of what it has meant to be a woman in Afghanistan during the last four decades. The novel lifts the veil of these women and shows the reader the female face of Afghanistan's population. A portrait of the male side was presented in The Kite Runner.
