    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.

    In this tale revolving around not just parents and children, but brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, Hosseini explores the many ways in which families nurture, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another; and how often we are surprised by the actions of those closest to us, at the times that matter most.

    Děj románu "A hory odpověděly" je jako rozvětvený starý dub vyrůstající z prašné půdy afghánské vesničky Šádbágh. Je to příběh o těžkém životě, o tom, že někdy člověk musí useknout prst, aby zachránil ruku, ale ze všeho nejvíc je to příběh o lásce. O lásce mezi rodiči a dětmi, o lásce sourozenecké, o lásce, která má mnohem více podob a barev, než nám nabízí romantická klišé.
