Publisher Comments:

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.

Marion and Shiva Stone are twin brothers born of 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.

CUTTING FOR STONE was my favorite book of 2011. Despite the pain and suffering, of very real historical events chronicled in this novel, that I felt keenly as I read this work of historical fiction, I was at the same time rejoicing to feel the love and loyalty and sacrifice these characters displayed toward one another. A triumph of the human spirit and celebration of all our shared humanity -- that's CUTTING FOR STONE.
