This was a wonderful story about commitment to healing and providing the best possible care under less than best circumstances. The characters are colorful and distinct and provide a picture of caring and concern for one another and the communities. When the story moves to the U.S. the contrast in care and facilities from Boston and Ethiopia are astounding. Then the contrast between the "White" hospitals and the poor hospitals in the US is equally appalling. The relationship between Marion and his twin brother Shiva is woven into the story in a compelling manner, with the shadow of their missing birth father hanging over the story line.
I enjoyed listing to Mr. Malhotra's accent as he performed the different characters. It heightened the African feel of the story. He reading was clear and concise and easy to understand, even with the acceint.
This was a book that I might have enjoyed listening to in one sitting, but it was long enough to keep me engaged for quite a while. I listen to these stories as I drive back and forth to work and make a point of not listening in between times (even if I want to!).
I enjoyed the color and character of this book and would definitely recommend it for anyone who enjoys stories about foreign countries and/or medical stories.
