When the genteely impoverished and rebellious Evelyn marries the
charming Emil, scion of a privileged Sinhalese family, she thinks
that her dream of a life in England can now at last come true. So
the family travel, with their young son Milton, from Ceylon to
Tilbury Docks. But this is England in the 1950s and, no matter how
hard Evelyn wishes that it would, England does not take kindly to
strangers, especially families who are half black and half white. A
profound and moving novel, this is the story about the search to
feel at home in your own skin.
