And the Mountains Echoed : A brother and sister are separated in childhood, and throughout this epic book, Hosseini weaves a tale of family--across countries and through the perspective of many characters-- and of how, sometimes, we must make hard decisions that hurt us and those we love, as we seek some greater good.
Khaled Hosseini - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia --- (I've read his books, The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, and I can't recommend them enough! Especially A Thousand Splendid Suns.. DO read it, if you haven't already!)
Khaled Hosseini - The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns - Both really great books. Not for the ethnocentric folks, though. You must have an open mind about the way other cultures and societies function.
