For most of us, our family plays a huge role in the formation of both our personalities and characters. Most of us are fortunate this influence is positive. Even so, the relationships between one and ones family can be quite complex and filled with a lot of bumps and bruises. Even so, most of us hold family close to our heart regardless of the weirdness that it brings. Books that revolve around some kind of familial theme warm my heart, here are some of the notable ones Ive read.
1.The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah: A coming of age story that revolves primarily around two sisters and their life in Nazi-occupied France during the Second World War. This book is a wonderful ode to those brave people that risked their lives saving people, and also a generous amount of sibling feels all throughout it.
2.The Wangs vs the World by Jade Chang: After suffering from the loss of all their fortunes, the protagonist Charles decides to take his dysfunctional family to a trip to China. This done in a bid to reclaim some ancestral land.
3.The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri: Though the main theme of the book is about Bengali immigrants trying to find a life in America, something that is way out of what they are accustomed to. The relationship between Gogol and his parents is something that has remained with me for a long time.
4.We are not ourselves by Matthew Thomas: A story that follows three generations of Irish Americans, it is mainly in the point of the view of Eileen, this story is just a beautiful tale of love and life.
5.And the mountains echoed by Khaled Hosseini: This list would be truly incomplete without this book. A tale that is technically about two siblings, Abdullah and Pari. But also follows the familial ties of several other characters, this book is one that stays with you. Plus like all of Hosseinis books the end is heart-breaking, to say the least.
