About the book - The story revolved around the last year of nineteenth century  in the village named Chevathar in southern India. Solomon Dorai, the headman, is desperately trying to hold together the fraying ends of village life at a time of huge social and political unease. When violence finally erupts, it takes Solomon and the traditional structure of the village with it. Three generations of Dorais come and go in the village by the sea, winning and losing the battle of Chevathar. There are Solomon’s sons: the dazzling, athletic Aaron and the studious Daniel, both exiled by their father’s death but in different ways, both determined to make their mark on the world. And there is Daniel’s son, Kannan, faced with a set of challenges that could break him if he isn’t strong enough.................
