Description: On a lush tea estate in Ceylon in the 1930s, two young children play using 'nothing but their imagination, ' pretending to be monkeys and swinging from the vines. But their idyll is interrupted when the world of adult sorrows encroaches on their paradise. Chandi and Lizzie, the children at the heart of this ambitious and extraordinary first novel by Sri Lankan author Karen Roberts, are born into different social worlds, yet they achieve a friendship innocent in its purpose, perfect in its understanding, and threatening to the adults around them. And when trouble comes, though, it is from a shocking direction.

An enchanting story of love and loss, and an impassioned portrait of a country trying to shake its colonial yoke, "The Flower Boy" will capture the reader's imagination until the very last page.
