Content descriptions

General Note: "Borzoi Books."
Summary, etc.: Sri Lanka, December 26, 2004: the Sumatra–Andaman earthquake unleashed a tsunami that devastated the region. Deraniyagala survived its wake, but lost her parents, her husband, and her two sons to the disaster. Her memoir describes her struggles through the first months following the tragedy, and the long years of bereavement as she worked to balance the almost unbearable reminders of her loss and the need to keep her family, somehow, still alive within her. --Adapted from publisher description.
