"A Thousand Splendid Suns" is a marvelous unforgettable portrait of a wounded country and a truly touching story of family and friendship. At the same time beautiful and difficult story of a harsh time, an unusual friendship and indestructible love.

Mariam is only fifteen years old when sent to Kabul to marry the unfortunate and bitter Rashid, thirty years older than her. Nearly two decades later, in a country that is rapidly sinking into ruin, tragedy strikes fifteen-year Leila, who must leave her home and become part of Mariam's unhappy household. Leila and Mariam will find solace in each other, their friendship will become as strong as the bond of two sisters, inseparable as a mother and daughter relationship.

As time passes, the Talibans come to power in Afghanistan, the streets of Kabul have vantages of gunfire and bombs, and life becomes a desperate struggle against starvation, brutality and fear. The persistence of two women faces challenges that they could not even imagine. And yet, love knows how to force a man to unimaginable acts, to help him overcome the worst obstacles showing amazing bravery. In the end love conquers death and destruction.
