The main plot, set in Afghanistan from the 1960s to the 1990s, is about Taliban Control. It follows the lives of two women in their war torn country experiencing domestic abuse, and a main theme is of oppression of Afghan women. The main plot seemed to fulfill my criteria. I like that the novel is split into dual narratives. All the way through the novel Hosseini weaves in information about Afghanistan's situation. I love that it is above all a story of hope and of life.
