And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Housseini

Where The Kite Runner focused on betrayal and redemption and A Thousand Splendid Suns on love and hope, this third Housseini novel revolves around family.

The writing style is somewhat nontraditional but easy to follow. Several stories are interwoven together to make a powerful narrative. Like his other two novels, this book spans decades of time and so follows the characters as they grow and mature. Again, Housseini easily makes readers feel deeply because his characters are so complex and realistic.
