Publisher's Summary

Summer, 1914. Young Englishwoman Vivian Rose Spencer is in an ancient land, about to discover the Temple of Zeus, the call of adventure, and love. 1000 of miles away a 20-year-old Pathan, Qayyum Gul, is learning about brotherhood and loyalty in the British Indian army.

Summer, 1915. Viv has been separated from the man she loves; Qayyum has lost an eye at Ypres. They meet on a train to Peshawar, unaware that a connection is about to be forged between their lives - one that will reveal itself 15 years later when anti-colonial resistance, an ancient artefact and a mysterious woman will bring them together again.

What the Critics Say

"First-rate - intelligent, vivid and completely absorbing." (Daily Mail)
"I can't recommend A God in Every Stone by Kamila Shamsie too strongly - this is her best novel yet...Exciting and, in the end, profoundly moving, this will solace you during the grimmest holiday." (Antonia Fraser, Guardian Summer Reading)
"A moving story of love and betrayal, generosity and brutality, hope and injustice, full of characters that stay with you ... Will surely confirm Shamsie's increasing eminence in the British world of letters." (Financial Times)

    "A potent moment in time"

    I found this book captivating - the vivid descriptions, especially of India/Pakistan as it moved toward independence were evocative and informative. I love well-researched historical fiction where I can gain new perspectives and understanding. This book did not disappoint - though I found the content quite different from what I expected based on the publisher's description. The narration was terrific as well. A rich experience.
