LoveReading Says

Simply breathtaking, both in its epic intensity and intimate storytelling. As civil war breaks out in Sri Lanka, one family finds itself breaking into pieces. The focus remains on 16 year old Sashi throughout as her dreams of becoming a doctor take her in an unexpected direction. While this is fiction, it is all too easy to imagine the impact the conflict would have had on families and communities. V.V. Ganeshananthan writes with an exquisitely tender and compassionate hand as she takes us into the harsh reality of war. Once I had finished the tale I began to research the Sri Lankan cilvil war and the wounds that are still being felt. I always know that a novel has really touched me when I feel inspired to explore further. I entered the novel and walked into heartbreak, desperation, emotional strength, and an abiding love for the people I met. Sashi and her brothers, and the community of Jaffna will stay with me. A LoveReading Star Book and Liz Pick of the Month, Brotherless Night is both beautiful and heart-wrenching, I can recommend it with every fibre of my being.
