Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese
Cutting for Stone

Susan F, January 30, 2013

Inticate plot and fascinating characters make this book one of my all-time favorites! This book also covers a brief, but accurate history of medicine.

The Beginner's Goodbye by Anne Tyler
The Beginner's Goodbye

Susan F, November 26, 2012

Here is another great book from author Anne Tyler! The first sentence in The Beginner's Goodbye attracts one's attention immediately. What follows is an intricate story that held me captive to the last page! Reading this book is like talking to someone who has experienced a great and sudden loss and being a witness to their journey through grief and subsequent healing. We also have a generous glimpse of other characters whose lives go on as Aaron struggles to come to terms with his loss.
