Cutting for Stone, by Abraham Verghese

From the flyleaf description I did not think I was going to enjoy this book but I really did. It is a family story centering on twin boys, Marion and Shiva, growing up in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in the 1950’s and 60’s at a mission hospital where their adoptive parents are doctors. Lots of well developed characters, interesting material on medicine, 20th century Ethiopean history and unexpected plot developments also enrich this debut novel.
