Roberts, Karen "The Flower Boy"

Roberts, Karen "The Flower Boy" - 2001

“The Flower Boy is a deeply moving and enchanting novel - a story of love, town secrets and family divisions.”

I read this book probably ten years ago. A story about Ceylon, as it was called then, in the 1930s. A story about a friendship, about Europeans in Asia, about masters and servants. A very well told story of the friendship between a little Ceylonese boy and the daughter of his English masters. I really liked this novel.
