1: THE CALL | Mariam is a girl who grew up with her mother outside of Afghanistan in a small village. Mariam's father is a successful businessman who owns a cinema and has several wives , a large house, and many "perks". Mariam has a strong desire to visit her father and live a similar lifestyle to his. This is what "called" her to live out a different life. She also wanted to find love, friendship, and be a mother as well. When She comes home and finds her own mother dead. She has to move in with her father. When she does, her father finds a "suitor" who she has to live with. "Miriam could think of nothing more in the whole world she wanted more than to walk in this garden with Jalil" (Hosseini 36).

2: Mariam crosses over to her new life, when she moves in with her new husband Rasheed. She has mixed feelings about this. This is the beginning of a life full of challenges and trials. Her time is spent doing work and being cast away in her room. " Don't come. I won't see you. Don't you come. I dont want to hear from you. Ever." (Hosseini 50) | Crossing the threshold

3: Supernatural Aid | A girl by the name of Laila is th supernatural aid. Although she has no supernatural abilities or powers how she came in contact with Mariam was almost divine. Laila was all but dead when Mariam's husband found her injured due to an explosion from the war. They take her back to the house and nurse her back to health. From here she is a companion and friend to Mariam. "Rasheed raised the belt again and this time at Mariam then an astonishing thing happened: The girl lunged at him." (Hosseini 216)

4: Road of Trials | Mariam spends her days doing chores and being cast away in her room as punishment for refusing to do certain chores. Along with being beaten and forced to have sexual relations with her suitor. As a result of these relations she became pregnant, but became brokenhearted when she had a miscarriage. "AS of towmorrow morning i expect you to start acting like a wife" (Hosseini 58)

5: The Goddess | Again Laila is the goddess in the story. She helps Mariam in almost a divine way which makes me think of her in a goddess way. When she arrives at the home she relieves Mariam of some of her problems such as living with so many chores and duties. She provides Mariam with a friend and creates a healthy relationship with her. (Hosseini 206)

6: Apotheosis | Mariam's apotheosis was when she finally stood up for herself and Laila, by protecting Laila. Over and over again both women were beaten and abused and no on cared because of the way the society was run. When Mariam fought back is when she took on the next level of "Hero". "He'd taken so much from her in 27 years of marriage. she would not watch him take Laila too". (Hosseini 310)

8: Master of Two Worlds | When Mariam sees Rasheed abuse Laila to the point of almost death, she is forced to step in To stop the abuse body. This is how she becomes a master of two worlds. A master of the world of poorness and sadness when living with Rasheed, to finally fighting to get her freedom and happiness at the end of the story; Even if freedom means death. "As she closed her eyes, it was not regret any longer but a sensation of abundant peace that washed over her" (Hosseini 329)
