Cutting for Stone

Cutting for Stone is by Abraham Verghese. A marvelous story of choices and how they can change everything. Marion and Shiva Stone are the twin sons of a British surgeon and a young Indian nun. Born in an Ethiopian hospital they must survive their mother's death, their father's desertion, and Ethiopia as it hovers on the brink of revolution. Raised by two Indian doctors who work at the hospital where they were born, both boys grow up with an interest in medicine. This is a magnificent and moving story of medicine, miracles, betrayal and two brothers whose destinies are joined forever. A great read!! A Reader's Corner Highly Recommended book.
