A Constellation of Vital Phenomena

by Anthony Marra
£8.99   paperback  Vintage (2014)

A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra When everything else seems lost, watch out for the unexpected ties that bind us together...
 
Longlisted for the National Book Award 2013
 
In a snow-covered village in Chechnya, eight-year-old Havaa watches from the woods as her father is abducted in the middle of the night by Russian soldiers. Their life-long friend and neighbour, Akhmed, has also been watching, and when he finds Havaa he knows of only one person who might be able to help.
 
For tough-minded doctor Sonja Rabina, it’s just another day of trying to keep her bombed-out, abandoned hospital going. When Akhmed arrives with Havaa, asking Sonja for shelter, she has no idea who the pair are. But over the course of five extraordinary days, Sonja’s world will shift on its axis, revealing the intricate pattern of connections that binds these three unlikely companions together and unexpectedly decides their fate.
