Bailey’s Women’s Prize for Fiction Shortlist Recap: Kamila Shamsie || A God in Every Stone

I loved the first 50 pages of A God in Every Stone. I would have loved for Shamsie to continue with the story of Vivian and her love for archeology, Turkey and the man she innocently betrays. I had to share her however with WW1, Peshawar and lots of bloodshed. Neither character comes to full bloom, two powerful story lines compete too much. It’s a fine novel but I’d be disappointed if this one were to win.
