Description
"La decisión de una humilde familia campesina de dar una hija en adopción a un matrimonio adinerado es el fundamento sobre el que Khaled Hosseini -- autor de las inolvidables Cometas en el cielo y Mil soles espléndidos -- ha tejido este formidable tapiz en el que se entrelazan los distinos de varias generaciones y se exploran las infinitas formas en que el amor, el valor, la traición y el sacrificio desempeñan un papel determinante en las vidas de las personas. La historia arranca en una remota y desolada aldea de Afganistán, donde Sabur y su segunda mujer se enfrentan en condiciones precarias a la llegada de otro invierno implacable. Abdulá, el hijo mayor, de diez años, ha cuidado de su hermana Pari desde que era pequeña, y ahora ambos escuchan cautivados la triste historia que les relata su padre antes de acostarlos, la víspera de iniciar un largo viaje que los conducirá hasta Kabul. Allí, en las bulliciosas calles de la capital, dará comienzo este fascinante itinerario que guiará al lector desde el otoño de 1952 hasta el presente, de Kabul a París, desde la isla griega de Tinos hasta San Francisco."--Page 4 of cover.
Description
Presents a story inspired by human love, how people take care of one another, and how choices resonate through subsequent generations. Afghanistan, 1952. Abdullah and his sister Pari live with their father and step-mother in the small village of Shadbagh. Their father, Saboor, is constantly in search of work and they struggle together through poverty and brutal winters. To Adbullah, Pari, as beautiful and sweet-natured as the fairy for which she was named, is everything; there is an unparalleled bond between these two motherless siblings. What happens to them, and the large and small manners in which it echos through the lives of so many other people is an example of the moral complexity of life. In this multigenerational novel revolving around parents and children, brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, the author explores the many ways in which family members love, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another.
