The novel skillfully weaves together themes of family, love, and the human spirit, creating a deeply immersive reading experience. Verghese’s ability to inhabit a carousel of sensibilities, including those of myriad women, is a testament to his insightful and empathetic storytelling. While the abundance of grace and lack of ill intent among the characters may feel unrealistic at times, the book can be read as a fable rather than a strict work of realism.

“Verghese’s novel is a genre-bending epic that weaves together elements of medical drama, history, social chronicle, and love.”

The Book Guide® Editor
