Marion and Shiva Stone are twin brothers born of a secret union between a beautiful Indian nun and a brash British surgeon at a mission hospital in Addis Ababa. Orphaned by their mother's death in childbirth 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. Yet it will be love, not politics -- their passion for the same woman -- that will tear them apart and force Marion, fresh out of medical school, to flee his homeland. He makes his way to America, finding refuge in his work as an intern at an underfunded, overcrowded New York City hospital. When the past catches up to him -- nearly destroying him -- Marion must entrust his life to the two men he thought he trusted least in the world: the surgeon father who abandoned him and the brother who betrayed him.… (mer)

I loved the story yet some parts of the book I did not like. It took awhile to get to the story which made it hard to keep reading. I did like the medical side of it. It gave me a new perspective of surgeons. I do hope they make it into a movie. I believe it would make a better movie.

This book had it all-Romance, Mystery, Family Drama-heartbreak, love, and war.

It is the story of Marion and Shiva Stone-twins born to an Indian Nun and an English Doctor at an Ethiopian Hospital called Missing (because the Ethiopians could not pronounce Mission). Their mother dies, their father leaves and they are swept into the arms of Hema, an Indian Doctor who loves them the minutes she holds them. Her love for the twins leads her to the love of a man, Gosh another doctor, who adores her. The story Verghese weaves of the family left me laughing and crying.

The POV is Marion's, from childhood in the world of Haile Selassie-through teen-age angst and then adulthood. Verghese can get a bit long winded in some of his passages, but he connected me to these characters so deeply I was able to overlook (and skim a bit I admit) that.

I never give a book 5 stars unless I can recommend it to all. There is violence, rape, a lot of dying- but considering the time and place it is set in, the story could not be told without it. So rounded down to 4 1/2 stars - but I am sorry it had to end. ( )

This is a long meandering book with sections of brilliance. It is especially important for people interested in global health issues. ( )

  wordloversf | Aug 14, 2021 |
Not as good as i expected it to be considering what great reviews it got. The writing was good and most of it was interesting but many parts lacked believability and the ending was disappointingly anti-climatic. I wouldn't give it any more than three stars and would think twice about recommending it. However because I like the author's writing style I will probably read some of his other books. ( )

And because I love this life
I know I shall love death as well
The child cries out when
From the right breast the mother
Takes it away, in the very next moment
To find in the left one
Its consolation.

from Gitanjuli
