The crushed hopes of mariam and laila in a thousand splendid suns a novel by khaled hosseini

Hosseini uses this novel to tell the story of Afghani women and the hardships that face them with each regime change. Much like the Kite Runner, Hosseini magically puts the reader in the city, neighborhood and house of his characters.

A Thousand Splendid Suns

She finds herself forced to marry a much older man after her mother commits suicide.

The elder, Mariam, was born to a servant woman out of wedlock and is raised in banishment, ignorance and eventual rejection during the years the Afghani government was controlled by the communists.
