The story line is about Marion and Shiva Stone who are twin brothers born of a secret union between a beautiful Indian nun and a brash British surgeon. Bound together by a connection and a shared fascination with medicine, the twins come of age as Ethiopia hovers on the brink of revolution. This is an unforgettable story of love and betrayal, medicine and ordinary miracles – and two brothers whose fates are forever intertwined.
