In a Balkan country mending from years of conflict, Natalia, a young doctor, arrives on a mission of mercy at an orphanage by the sea. By the time she and her lifelong friend Zóra 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 involving the strange family digging for something in the surrounding vineyards. Secrets hidden in the landscape itself.

Opinion

From Library Staff

A spellbinding tale that is both lush and haunting, Obreht blurs the line between fable and truth, atrocity and hatred as a young woman seeks resumes her late grandfather's search for the "deathless man."

This is my favorite novel, and despite its problematic issues (such as rape being spoken about in the book) I would recommend it to others.

A story that entices you in and then keeps feeding you with layered characters and mysteries, some of which will be explained. Looking forward to her next book.
