About the Book :
In his first novel, journalist Binoo K. John returns to the land of his birth – the magical, sensual, about-to-be-drowned tip of Kerala. Within moments of meeting Savio, the young man whose voice weaves magic in the lives of those around him, we are plunged into a story of undying love and great loss wherein church and mosque and temple vie for believers, young love finds its moorings in tragedy, and friends must earn their rites of passage.
Set against the backdrop of the 2004 tsunami, this is a gripping novel about ordinary people who survive against great odds to carve their indelible stories on sand.
