    In this stunning historical novel, Mary Sutter is a brilliant, headstrong midwife from Albany, New York, who dreams of becoming a surgeon. Determined to overcome the prejudices against women in medicine—and eager to run away from her recent heartbreak—Mary leaves home and travels to Washington, D.C. to help tend the legions of Civil War wounded.

    I could not stop listening on more than one occasion and was frequently late for work as I sat in my car riveted by the passion, compassion, and intensity of this story. Great research that really evokes the pitiful conditions endured by so many during the Civil War.

    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.

    Audiophile says: "An Epic Medical Novel"
    "Outstanding!"
    Overall

    This book will stay with me for a long time. As someone who works in healthcare I was a little put off by the subject simply because I try to escape from the world of medicine when I read or listen to audiobooks, but the reviews were so good that I eventually had to succumb. I am so glad that I did. Verghese does an extraordinary job of weaving anatomy and medicine into the story without pulling focus. This novel is thoroughly researched, beautifully written, and will keep you engrossed for hours. One of the best books I've ever read!
