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.

    I don't know whether the end of this book is the real situation or just the imagination of the author. All I know is this book breaks my heart over and over and over again.

  • Kooswardini Wulandarihas quoted7 years ago
    man’s heart is a wretched, wretched thing, Mariam. It isn’t like a mother’s womb. It won’t bleed, it won’t stretch to make room for you.
  • Светлана Комароваhas quoted8 years ago
    Learn this now and learn it well, my daughter: Like a compass needle that points north, a man’s accusing finger always finds a woman. Always. You remember that, Mariam

    As a reminder of how women like us suffer, she’d said. How quietly we endure all that falls upon us.
