Summary
In a snow-covered village in Chechnya, eight-year-old Havaa watches as her father is abducted by Russian soldiers. Their neighbor Akhmed takes Havaa to the bombed-out hospital of Sonja Rabina. Sonja has no desire to take on more responsibility and risk -- there's someone of her own whose return she doesn't want to jeopardize. But over the course of five extraordinary days, Sonja's world will shift on its axis. (Bestseller)
Summary
This debut novel by Pushcart Prize-winning author Anthony Marra is set in rural Chechnya during the region's war with Russia. Though events shift in time, the main focus is a five-day period in 2004, when an eight-year-old girl witnesses her father's abduction by Russian soldiers. Swearing to protect the girl, local doctor Akhmed (whose true passion is portraiture), brings her to a crumbling hospital, run by a hardened but dedicated surgeon, for safety. - Description by Shauna Griffin
