About the Book
Accompany the author as he takes you through his adventures.
Born in the tropical island of Sri Lanka at a time when the world was heading into a World War, this story tells of a family separated by these events, and what life was like growing up in a culture that was resilient, kindly and accommodating.

From a school founded by an educator before his time, whose aim was to produce not merely scholars, but gentlemen, share these experiences through to adulthood, and migration to a new land.

Then comes an unlikely and unexpected re-union with his father in far off England, after forty six years.

A tragic and heart-wrenching tragedy follows, with the gradual steps to recovery over several years.

Finally a triumphant return to the home of his youth, is followed by several visits with his family, as they share the magical memories of his youth.
