Cutting for Stone

Cutting for Stone - Abraham Verghese When I began to read this book, I made the remark to someone that I was so happy, so comfortable with the writing that I would keep reading regardless of the book's place in my target genres. Fortunately, the storyline was strong and kept me interested. I'll rank this as one of the best books I've ever read. I felt educated, comforted, drawn in as a confidant, as a family member, and rarely a disinterested observer.
