    Born a generation apart and with very different ideas about love and family, Mariam and Laila are two women brought jarringly together by war, by loss, and by fate. As they endure the ever escalating dangers around them, in their home as well as in the streets of Kabul, they come to form a bond that makes them both sisters and mother-daughter to each other, and that will ultimately alter the course not just of their own lives but of the next generation.

    David says: "Somber but gripping"
    "Good book badly read"
    Overall

    This is a great story but what a pity that the narrator thinks that every foreign name and word must be heavily stressed on the last syllable. It wasn't until I read a rewiew in a magazine that I realised that one of the characters was called Laila. The reader also often thinks she has come to the end of the sentence so her voice falls, only to realise there is more to come. This happens so often it is off-putting.

    Prodigal Summer weaves together three stories of human love within a larger tapestry of lives in southern Appalachia. At the heart of these intertwined narratives is a den of coyotes that have recently migrated into the region. Deanna Wolfe, a reclusive wildlife biologist, watches them from an isolated mountain cabin where she is caught off-guard by Eddie Bondo, a young hunter who comes to invade her most private spaces and her solitary life.

    A wonderful book which should have won the Orange Prize read very well.
