When a poor young boy succumbs to his injuries in the ICU, no one considers it anything but the result of a tragic accident. No one, that is, but Lotus, an introverted daydreamer who is drifting into a career in medicine more by parental choice than her own.

As a chance witness to his final moments, she is unwittingly drawn into his case & soon finds herself both angry & upset trying to understand what really happened to him.

Why, for instance, did the boy dash recklessly across the road into the path of a passing vehicle? Why did he have a contact with the same name as hers on his phone? What was his link to the luxurious Lotus Hospital?

Her sense of justice aroused, she follows a trail that takes her through the hospitals, slums & mansions of Colombo, juggling all this within her gritty life as a medical student.

 

@Carmel Miranda’s first novel creates a unique narrative that combines a sensitive & nuanced understanding of the Lankan medical world with a powerful & moving, yet unsentimental, psychological account of love, loss & reconciliation.”
