Did you know that Khaled Hosseini, the author of the #1 best seller "The Kite Runner", just came out with a new novel? I just read an amazing review of "And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini".
This is an epic tale set in the mold of Doctor Zhivago, in which the lives of the characters are determined, often tragically, by great historical circumstances and events that they are powerless to control. Khaled Hosseini’s story tells of a little Afghan girl’s unlikely journey with her family.
And the Mountains Echoed is a love story of a different kind. Pari, as she is named, is loved by her older brother beyond words. When she is torn from him and her family at the tender age of three, the stage is set for the suspense that will last as long as the story: will they ever meet again?
