Marion and Shiva Stone are twin brothers born of a secret union between a beautiful Indian nun and a brash British surgeon at a mission hospital in Addis Ababa. Although they come of age as Ethiopia hovers on the brink of revolution, it will be love, not politics --- their passion for the same woman --- that will tear them apart and force Marion, fresh out of medical school, to flee his homeland. When the past catches up to him, Marion must entrust his life to the two men he thought he trusted least in the world.
