    The Flower Boy Free read ✓ 108 The Flower BoyThis is a beautiful book that's about so many things It's about strangers in a strange land family choices relationships and expectations but mostly it's about lifeYou will fall in love with the characters even the ones who you want to shake some sense into as they each meander in their own clumsy way through 1930's and 40's CeylonI loved how the characters developed and
