?I chose this book score because i offered me a vacation from regular day living. It was very interesting that you lived thru generations that made commitments to family... a must read.

I found this book to be overly long with meaningless side stories. Could have left out at least one hundred pages. Then would have been an ok read.

this book started out dry but gained my interest about halfway through - lots of medical terminology which I found interesting

Pretty good read, A little long and dry in parts and kind of depressing. But very though provoking and eye opening.

I found this book to be in the same format as other tragic love stories. The forbidden love between the amazing doctor and the nun-nurse has been done in so many other formats that it does get tedious. And of course the sin that cannot be hidden once the babies appear.

Thomas Stone is an outstanding surgeon with deep emotional scars from childhood that inhibit him from developing any normal relationship with another human being. Along comes Mary the Nun and she is also scarred but she helps Thomas Stone and dedicates her life to standing by his side while he performs surgery. It is not until her life is ebbed out of her that Thomas comes to realization that he loves Mary beyond all else. Her life is given in the birth of her twin sons, whom Thomas Stone rejects and leaves behind as he tries to run from his grief...due to the death of Mary.

The twin boys Marion and Shiva are raised by Hema and Ghosh who worked with Thomas Stone. They consider the boys to be theirs and raise them as a family. Life ensues and living in Ethiopia life is full of conflict and struggles. Marion and Shiva are not left clean in their pursuit of adulthood and education. They both end up as doctors, but so different from each other.

The ending is not surprising, tragic as expected, with martyrdom abound. I found the story tedious and I really did not like any of the characters, they all were so unlikable. The medical information was interesting, but not intriguing enough to make this an outstanding read that I was hoping for.
