This book is about Rene who lived in Kalapaluwawa a village in Sri Lanka, the island country off the southern coast of India that was once known as Ceylon. Brian Wicklin is the author and the next youngest of Rene's 6 children. He lives in Sweden.
The book spells out the emotionally compelling story about his mother and the troublesome life she endured living with her husband, how it all ended in the most unusual of ways, her departure for London not being able to say goodbye to her children and not knowing anyone who was out there to meet her.
Against all odds in its favour she met her children one by one as grown-ups 15 to 20 years after her departure.
