This trauma becomes the defining moment in the lives of Josephina, her daughter Sithera, and her granddaughter Annie. The effects cascade through generations as Annie sets out across the world to discover what happened to split up her family. Set in Sri Lanka, Singapore, New Zealand, Australia and London, Amma is novel about family, displacement, secrets, and how the past lives with us forever.


Written in sensuous, vivid prose, Amma is a story of the rich history and unknown future of the Sri Lankan diaspora - and of one family desperately trying to find peace.
