Review by: Jelsey
Twin boys are born and raised in an Ethiopian medical center and eventually pursue medical careers. Along the way, we see medicine as practiced in a third-world country, a political coup that overthrows the government, a culture that blends aspects of previous colonists, visiting religious groups, and modern influences with the native East Africans. It is also a love story. This is a big book, but a real page turner!
