After 103 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and with four million copies of The Kite Runner shipped, Khaled Hosseini returns with a beautiful, riveting, and haunting novel that confirms his place as one of the most important literary writers today.   Propelled by the same superb instinct for storytelling that made The Kite Runner a beloved classic, A Thousand Splendid Suns is at once an incredible chronicle of thirty years of Afghan history and a deeply moving story of family, friendship, faith, and the salvation to be found in love.   Born a generation apart and with very different ideas about love and family, Mariam and Laila are two women brought jarringly together by war, by loss and by fate. As they endure the ever escalating dangers around them-in their home as well as in the streets of Kabul-they come to form a bond that makes them both sisters and mother-daughter to each other, and that will ultimately alter the course not just of their own lives but of the next generation. With heart-wrenching power and suspense, Hosseini shows how a woman’s love for her family can move her to shocking and heroic acts of self-sacrifice, and that in the end it is love, or even the memory of love, that is often the key to survival. A stunning accomplishment, A Thousand Splendid Suns is a haunting, heartbreaking, compelling story of an unforgiving time, an unlikely friendship, and an indestructible love. 如果注定要面對悲慘的命運,我們該將何去何從?  15歲的私生女瑪黎安,與母親相依為命住在山區簡陋的小屋,最大的心願就是和 父親一起看電影過生日,沒想到卻導致母親自殺,更讓自己被迫嫁給一位40歲的鰥夫鞋商。20年後,出身中產家庭、受過良好教養的15歲少女萊拉,在戰火中 失去所有的親人,為求生存,不得不也選擇嫁給瑪黎安性情乖戾的丈夫。  瑪黎安與萊拉儘管相差了19歲,對於愛和家庭的概念大不相同,但兩人的命運卻因為戰爭、喪親而交纏在一起。在共同歷經了丈夫的凌虐之後,她們不但情同姊妹,甚至更如同母女般相互依存,最後還扭轉了自己的人生道路。  作者以感人至深的力道,描繪了阿富汗女性在砲火、飢餓、暴虐與恐懼之下,如何絕望地忍受煎熬苦難,與命運搏鬥,以及她們如何憑藉著對家庭的愛,勇敢地犧牲自我,而最終,也是愛,或者說,是對愛的記憶,支撐倖存者勇敢活下去。  這是一個讓人難以忘懷、心碎的故事,關於一個殘酷的年代、一段不可能的友誼和永遠無法毀滅的愛。  而儘管生命充滿苦痛與辛酸,但每一段悲痛的故事中都能讓人見到微弱的希望曙光。  時空跨越三十年的揪心記錄,一部關於家庭、友誼、信念和自我救贖的動人故事。《燦爛千陽》再次以阿富汗戰亂為背景,用細膩感人的筆觸描繪了阿富汗舊制度與新時代下苦苦掙扎的婦女,她們所懷抱的希望、愛情、夢想與所有的失落。本書中文版由「木馬文化」出版。
