Abraham Verghese has said that his goal in writing this novel was "to tell a great story, an old-fashioned truth-telling story" That is this novel which spans 50 years in the lives of an unusual family group. The cast of characters is an array of immigrants, doctors, children, the country of Ethiopia, all struggling with loss, divisions, growing up, love, reconciliation, and unity. This is an epic story(500+ pages) but worth your time. It might be the best novel I've read so far this year.
