W. Somerset Maugham”s “The Painted Veil.”

W. Somerset Maugham’s “The Painted Veil” is an absolute gem. Its power is heart wrenching, the growth and maturity of its main character, Kitty, is astonishing and a tribute to the human spirit, and its depiction of the sacrifice and charity of a convent of Catholic nuns in the heart of a cholera epidemic is awe inspiring and a wonderful contrast to the triviality that so concerns the everyday lives of individuals removed from the real world.

I loved this book. The writing is beautiful and I was touched on so many levels that I lost count. Amazing!
