Summary
Presents a story inspired by human love, how people take care of one another, and how choices resonate through subsequent generations. Afghanistan, 1952. Abdullah and his sister Pari live with their father and step-mother in the small village of Shadbagh. Their father, Saboor, is constantly in search of work and they struggle together through poverty and brutal winters. To three-year Pari, big brother Abdullah is more mother than brother. To ten-year old Adbullah, Pari, as beautiful and sweet-natured as the fairy for which she was named, is everything. What happens to them -- and the large and small manners in which it echoes through the lives of so many other people -- is proof of the moral complexity of life. Hosseini explores the many ways in which family members love, wound, betray, honor and sacrifice for one another; and how often we are surprised by the actions of those closest to us, at the times that matter most
