    characters ¶ July AUTHOR Karen Roberts July AUTHOR Karen RoberAlthough it doesn't encompass the whole truth of the start of the racial conflict in Sri Lanka the book gives meaning to love in the times of war The book had me in tears in many of the chapters and it angered me to think there were a few people out of the millions in Sri Lanka who made a meaningless massacre a politically correct situation There is a lot to the conflict but Karen Roberts reveals the emotional and sensitive side of it perfectly One of my all time favorite books
