Product Description

Tea Obreht, the youngest of The New Yorker's twenty best American fiction writers under forty, spins a timeless novel of family legend, loss, and love. In a Balkan country mending from years of conflict, Natalia, a young doctor, arrives on a mission of mercy at an orphange by the sea. By the time she and her lifelong friend Zora begin to inoculate the children there, she feels age-old superstitions and secrets gathering everywhere around her. Secrets her outwardly cheerful hosts have chosen not to tell her. Secrets invovling the strange family digging for something in the surrounding vineyards. Secrets hidden in the landscape itself. But Natalia is also confronting a private, hurtful mystery of her own: the inexplicable circumstances surrounding her beloved grandfather's recent death. Grief-struck and searching for clues to her grandfather's final state of mind, she turns to the stories he told her when she was a child. And it is ultimately within these rich, luminous narratives that she will find the answer she is looking for. 338p.
