Room, by Emma Donoghue, is a story told through the eyes of a 5 year old named Jack. His mother has been a captive in the same room for many years, but to Jack it is the only home he has ever known. I do not want to give away anymore of the story, but it is a worth while read. There are many tenderhearted moments. You can understand where this little boy's love for his "Room" comes from and at the same time commiserate with his mother as to why she hates it.
Moving from Addis Ababa to New York City and back again, Cutting for Stone is an unforgettable story of love and betrayal, medicine and ordinary miracles--and two brothers whose fates are forever intertwined.
