a thousand splendid suns

...big exhale.
I just finished this book..and it was hard, hard, hard read...even more so than kiterunner. It was beautiful, wrenching, convicting, revealing...and hard.
I just am glad to have finished it...
and realize how much we need to be thinking of the human side of war...of the women and children and weak who are the helpless victims....
sigh.
quiet inside my heart this day.
lead me God.
amen.

You mean you read 'The Kite Runners' that book about boys in Afghanistan? We read it for our book club this month and it really got the ten of us talking. It was our Christmas breakup lunch meeting in a neat Californian Bungalow house of one of the guys - we all brought tasty items - and we talked for nearly two hours before eating!
Best wishes for the Advent and Christmas season.

Yes, read the Kite Runner. But the book I am talking about is titled "A Thousand Splendid Suns" the next book by the same author~~set in Afghanistan, this time the main characters are women. It's a quite a read.
