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 Adbullah, Pari, as beautiful and sweet-natured as the fairy for which she was named, is everything.
Although the Kite Runner was terribly sad, And the Mountains Echoed was uplifting and emotional. There are definitely sad elements to the story, but it focuses more on family, memory, and storytelling around the world. Hosseini's writing is magical and enthralling.
