From author Khaled Hosseini, acclaimed writer of “Kite Runner,” comes the new novel “And the Mountains Echoed.”
The book is “about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations. In this tale revolving around not just parents and children but brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, Hosseini explores the many ways in which families nurture, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another,” according to the book’s description on Amazon.com.
