the novel is a stunning artistry and imagination about the light that radiates from us all and the wounds we bear. After an accident, the private journal of love notes written by a husband to his wife passes into the keeping of a hospital patient and then passes on to other five suffering people. As we follow the journey of the book from stranger to stranger, we get to know how their human injury and experiences are brilliantly connected.
