About This Book

An epic novel of love, loss and a family uprooted, this story is set in the contrasting landscapes of war-torn Sri Lanka and immigrant London. Grace de Silva, wife of the shiftless but charming Aloysius, has five children and a crumbling marriage. As civil unrest stirs in Sri Lanka, her youngest son and the rebel of the family is soon caught up in the tragedy that follows. As the decade unfolds against a backdrop of increasing ethnic violence, Grace watches helplessly as the life she knows begins to unravel. Slowly, this once happy family is torn apart as her children each make the decision to leave their home. In London, the de Silvas are all, in their different ways, desperately homesick. Caught in a cultural clash between East and West, life is not as they expected. This edition contains suggested discussion topics for reading/book groups.
