A God in Every Stone

by Kamila Shamsie

Modern and Classic Literary Fiction

A God in Every Stone Synopsis

Summer, 1915. Viv has been separated from the man she loves; Qayyum has lost an eye at Ypres. They meet on a train to Peshawar, unaware that a connection is about to be forged between their lives - one that will reveal itself fifteen years later when anti-colonial resistance, an ancient artefact and a mysterious woman will bring them together again.

A God in Every Stone Press Reviews

'First-rate - intelligent, vivid and completely absorbing' Daily Mail

 

'I can't recommend A God in Every Stone by Kamila Shamsie too strongly - this is her best novel yet ... Exciting and, in the end, profoundly moving, this will solace you during the grimmest holiday' Antonia Fraser Guardian

 

'Summer Reading A moving story of love and betrayal, generosity and brutality, hope and injustice, full of characters that stay with you ... Will surely confirm Shamsie's increasing eminence in the British world of letters' Financial Times

 

'The voices of those silenced from the pages of history resound in Kamila Shamsie's accomplished, atmospheric sixth novel ... Shamsie excavates the deepest corners of the human heart' Observer

 

'A page-turner that is also a literary delight' Jeanette Winterson, Guardian Summer Reading

 

'Love, politics, history - it has it all' Sunday Telegraph
