One of the most anticipated books of 2013 will soon be on the shelves of the Monrovia Library. Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, which together have sold more than 38 million copies, has written a new novel called And the Mountains Echoed. Set in Afghanistan, this is the story of a brother and sister, how their father gives away the sister to a wealthy family and how that decision reverberates through the generations. Hosseini’s ever present themes of sacrifice, familial bonds and the longing for home make this a very special story and give readers a greater understanding of Afghanistan, where Hosseini’s books are always set.
