BY THE WINNER OF THE WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION'I can't recommend A God in Every Stone by Kamila Shamsie too strongly ... Exciting and, in the end, profoundly moving, this will solace you during the grimmest holiday' - Antonia Fraser, Guardian Summer Reading'A magnificent novel: beautiful, terrible, true ... It reads already like a classic' - Ali Smith'A moving story of love and betrayal, generosity and brutality, hope and injustice, full of characters that stay with you' - Financial TimesShortlisted for the Baileys Women's Prize for FictionSummer, 1914.

Viv has been separated from the man she loves; Qayyum has lost an eye at Ypres.
