Mariam is only fifteen when she is sent to Kabul to marry Rasheed. Nearly two decades later, a friendship grows between Mariam and a local teenager, Laila, as strong as the ties between mother and daughter. When the Taliban take over, life becomes a desperate struggle against starvation, brutality and fear. Yet love can move a person to act in unexpected ways, and lead them to overcome the most daunting obstacles with a startling heroism.

Descripción Paperback. Condición: new. Paperback. Mariam is an harami, an illegitimate child who only sees her adored father once a week. On those precious days they go fishing, he reads to her and gives her beautiful presents, but she can never live with him. When she decides to visit his home, a visit he does not acknowledge, she returns to find that her mother has hanged herself. Determined that she will not secure a place in their household, her fathers wives marry her off to Rasheed, an elderly widower from Kabul, far enough away for Mariam to be safely forgotten. Theirs is a marriage that soon deteriorates into brutality and misery made worse for Mariam by the arrival of the orphaned Laila and Rasheeds decision to marry her. When Laila disappoints Rasheed by bearing a daughter, she too finds herself the target of his cruelty. Out of this unhappy household grows a friendship which will bind the two women in a union as close as any marriage, and which will endure beyond death. With heart-wrenching power and suspense, the bestselling author of "The Kite Runner" shows how a woman's love for her family can move her to shocking and heroic acts of self-sacrifice, and that in the end it is love that is often the key to survival.
