I received the Read It Forward book I won! This one came really quick and it was shipped through UPS so I had an email alert when it was on its way.
Anthony Marra’s A Constellation of Vital Phenomena is summarized as the following:
In the final days of December 2004, in a small rural village in Chechnya, eight-year-old Havaa hides in the woods when her father is abducted by Russian forces. Fearing for her life, she flees with their neighbor Akhmed – a failed physician – to the bombed-out hospital, where Sonja, the one remaining doctor, treats a steady stream of wounded rebels and refugees and mourns her missing sister. Over the course of five dramatic days, Akhmed and Sonja reach back into their pasts to unravel the intricate mystery of coincidence, betrayal, and forgiveness that unexpectedly binds them and decides their fate.
I’m going to start reading this today and I will post a review once I am finished. It’s been a while since I read an actual book (versus an e-book) and I think I will enjoy it. There’s something different about the look, touch, feel and smell (yes, smell) of a paperback book. I love layout of this novel and the texture of the cover. I hope it’s one of those stay-awake-till-3-am stories.
