What other readers are saying about this title:
Avatar for Laura P. Laura P. said:
Unlike Housseini’s earlier books, this novel is more like a series of related stories rather than a regular novel. The book covers time from the 1950s until nearly the present day. Various characters from one chapter reappear in another. All of the characters are related or connected in some way. A running theme is the sacrifices people make for others. Whether it is from guilt, obligation or love, some of the characters make great sacrifices for the others in their lives while others can’t find it within themselves to make those sacrifices. However, even if one has run away from those they love or who need their help, it is never too late to rekindle relationships. Definitely a worthwhile read, but not quite as good as his earlier novels.
