Book Description: Under the shifting shadows of the palm trees, a boy and a girl become friends. then fate deals them a savage blow. Gnalam, the foreman's gifted and determined daughter, is expected to enhance her family's status through a good marriage. Happy-go-lucky Saravanan can't wait to join his parents as a plantation worker. But with shocking suddenness the estate workers and their families are evicted from the estate and forced into squatter camps. The frustrations of Gnalam's embittered father drive her to pursue her studies and win a place at university. However, her old friend Saravanan, barely educated, drifts into a life of crime and violence. Both remain worlds apart. until, years later, Saravanan joins Gnalam's campaign to better the lives of plantation workers. Will his past destroy her aspirations-or will their bond, formed beneath the palm fronds, triumph? About the Author: PAUL CALLAN was born in Dublin, Ireland. His love of storytelling was fuelled while attending Chanel College in North Dublin. As a young man in London, he abandoned his first attempt at becoming a novelist in pursuit of a career in business. After marrying his Malaysian wife, he visited Malaysia many times, and fell in love with the country and its people. He now divides his time between his homes in Kuala Lumpur and London. He is also the author of The Dulang Washer.
