Still the writing is incredibly lush. The characters are so easy to fall in love with and they stay with you, like old friends. There are so many fantastic moments. This quote in particular has been lingering on my mind and will be for some time to come:
“The key to your happiness is to own your slippers, own who you are, own how you look, own your family, own the talents you have, and own the ones you don't. If you keep saying your slippers aren't yours, then you'll die searching, you'll die bitter, always feeling you were promised more. Not only our actions, but also our omissions, become our destiny.”
― Abraham Verghese,
