This year I am particularly looking forward to Thanksgiving and quality time with friends and family. With the world we live in ever growing in conflict and fear, we sometimes need to be reminded that we all possess the ability to learn from mistakes and live with respect and compassion for others. We get to wake up each day and become a braver, better version of ourselves; to forgive and be forgiven. To be redeemed in whatever way speaks to us. So, if Hosseini’s latest novel is anything like his previous ones, this is what we can expect. If you have read The Kite Runner or A Thousand Splendid Suns, you know you are in for an emotional ride but one that is worth taking because, in the end, those who suffer most find that magical and unique redemption. Isn’t that a sentiment we all could explore?
Grab a copy and join me for an online discussion about the novel on Tuesday, December 2, 2014 (so as not to interfere with Thanksgiving week).
