Abraham Verghese, Cutting for Stone

Abraham Verghese, Cutting for Stone. Twins, surgeons, nuns, unrequited love, and revolution from India to Ethiopia to New York and back again. It's overblown and dramatic, but who cares? I can't remember the last time I stayed up all night to finish a story.

I absolutely loved this book! I could hardly tear myself away from it. When away from it I would unconsciously think about the characters. It brought me to tears in some places, and it made me anxiously hold my breath in others. Don't let the size of the book daunt you, you will hardly notice the pages flying by once you start reading it!
