The Historian- Elizabeth Kostova
The Tiger's Wife - Tea Obrecht
The Tiger's Wife is set in the Balkans and explores with a young doctor, Natalia, trying to uncover the circumstances around her Grandfather's death. There are also two myths within the story itself, which feature her grandfather; his experiences with the Tiger's Wife and The Deathless Man.
It's very strange but an incredibly beautiful story. I'd love to see it made into a film.
