The Stone Fields

Love and Death in the Balkans

Book - 2005
Rate this:

When she was twenty-three years old, Courtney Angela Brkic joined a UN-contracted forensic team in eastern Bosnia. Unlike many aid workers, Brkic was drawn there by her family history, and although fluent in the language, she was advised to avoid letting local workers discover her ethnicity. Her passionate narrative of establishing a morgue in a small town and excavating graves at Srebenica is braided with her family's remarkable history in what was once Yugoslavia. The Stone Fields , deeply personal and wise, asks what it takes to prevent the violent loss of life, and what we are willing to risk in the process.
