We see Afghanistan under the rule of several different governments. How do their differing ideologies affect the lives . A Thousand Splendid Suns sometimes portrays family as a burden, but it always portrays it as a burden worth carrying. The novel doesn't limit the concept of "family" to just blood relatives. On the contrary, Mariam and Laila's mother-daughter relationship shows that other people can fulfill familial roles.
