Do you remember seeing the little snippet of this book a couple of weeks ago when
we were out on my back patio? Some of you made me laugh because you
noticed the Tootsie Rolls and not the book. :)
I finally finished this book and wanted to share a little about it.
This was so out of my southern fiction loving zone it's not even funny!
was this month's selection for the book club I'm in with friends.
Here's the synopsis from the book jacket:
Marion and Shiva Stone are twin brothers born of a secret union between a beautiful Indian nun and a brash British surgeon. Orphaned by their mother’s death and their father’s disappearance, bound together by a preternatural connection and a shared fascination with medicine, the twins come of age as Ethiopia hovers on the brink of revolution.
Moving from Addis Ababa to New York City and back again, Cutting for Stone is an unforgettable story of love and betrayal, medicine and ordinary miracles--and two brothers whose fates are forever intertwined.
Are you intrigued?
There were parts of the story that were difficult to read but I could barely put it down!
