Reading; A Thousand splendid Suns;

A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
was first published in 2007.
The story tugs on your heart and your eyes will brim with tears. It is unbelievable what women have to endure under senseless rules. There are always people ready, no matter what country, to create chaos and terror in what ever name.

Page 365 The lines are from Hafez's ghazals

Hovels shall turn to rose gardens, grieve not,
If a flood should arrive, to drown all that's alive, grieve not,

A Thousand Splendid Suns is an unforgettable portrait of a wounded country and a deeply moving story of family and friendship. It is a beautiful, heart wrenching story of an unforgiving time, an unlikely bond and an indestructible love.

Never apologize for chatting when you visit me. I love it. I have a bench in my garden that says, 'Sit long, Talk much'
