Nel I read this book maybe 10 years ago.
I think the plot was set in India (maybe Africa)
A Caucasian man witnesses a child die (in India / Africa) but doesn't do anything to help. Somwhow him and his wife build a relationship with the sibling. The book is about regrets and forgiveness. It was a beautiful touching story.
At the time, Nicole Kidman was attached to the movie adaptation but a movie was never made as far as I know (no, it's not the Lion!)

Martini (shakenorstirred) | 212 comments This should be Little Bee/The Other Hand. Since the book's descriptions on GR are not really helpful, here's a better plot summary: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Oth...
ETA: Wikipedia also mentions the involvement of Nicole Kidman in the planned movie.

Nel already left the group. That was fast.

Martini (shakenorstirred) | 212 comments Perhaps s/he has left the group because the request was solved. But no comment, no confirmation... that's frustrating.
