Review

"A searing tale of the Sri Lankan civil war...Nayomi Munaweera breathes life into the beauty and terror of that era through her delicate, bittersweet prose. An unforgettable novel."--Yangsze Choo, author of "The Ghost Bride", international bestseller in SE Asia and Oprah.com's Book of the Week

"A novel of the heart...The colour, tastes, sounds and smells of Sri Lanka ooze from its pages, vibrant and intoxicating, but as beauty turns to brutality our sympathies are tossed between two young women whose different paths are fashioned by the violence of civil war, but whose inner humanity is never forgotten." --Sarah Dunant, author of "Blood and Beauty" and "Birth of Venus

""Exquisitely written and beautifully evocative of an exotic place and bygone age." --Alan Brennert, author of "Moloka'""i

""Munaweera writes with ferocity, fire and poetry of the incomprehensible madness of civil war and its effects upon those caught within it... A masterful, incendiary debut."--Janet Fitch, #1 international bestselling author of "White Oleander"
