Content descriptions

General Note: "Originally published in Great Britain by Harper Press in 2008"--T.p. verso.
Summary, etc.: "When Grace de Silva's once-prominent family loses its vast tea estate, Grace has little idea how everyone's life in her lush, Eden-like homeland of Sri Lanka is about to change. Her children dream of escape - Jacob, the eldest, wants desperately to go to England; Thornton longs to become a poet; Alicia is brewing, and Christopher, the youngest of the de Silva children, is caught up in the violence and tragedy that follows. Against a backdrop of escalating ethnic conflict, Grace watches helplessly as the life she knew begins to crumble. Slowly, this once-inseparable family is torn apart as they make the decision to immigrate to England. In London, the de Silva's are all, in their different ways, desperately homesick. Caught in a cultural clash between the traditional life they knew in the East and the jarring modernity of the West, life is not what any of them dreamed of. Only ten-year-old Meeka moves confidently into a world that is full of possibilities. But even her life is not as easy as it often seems. It takes heartbreak and a terrible mistake before she is finally able to see the extraordinary effects of history on her family's migration."--p. [2] of cover.
