    • Product Description

      It is the last year of the nineteenth century in the village of Chevathar in southern India. Solomon Dorai, the headman, is desperately trying to hold together the fraying ends of village life at a time of huge social and political unease. When violence finally erupts, it takes Solomon and the traditional structure of the village with it. Three generations of Dorais come and go in the village by the sea, winning and losing the battle of Chevathar. There are Solomon's sons: the dazzling, athletic Aaron and the studious Daniel, both exiled by their father's death but in different ways, both determined to make their mark on the world. And there is Daniel's son, Kannan, faced with a set of challenges that could break him if he isn't strong enough... This is a passionate, powerful novel in which the triumphs and tragedies of wonderfully conceived characters are set against a background of extraordinary historical events. A New York Times Notable Book published in 16 countries. A skilful mix of personal and political, set against the backdrop of the Indian Independence struggle.
