    Kindle Island of a Thousand Mirrors Epub È of a Thousand ✓ fantasy books.co island ebok, thousand ebok, mirrors epub, Island of ebok, a Thousand download, of a Thousand epub, Island of a Thousand Mirrors EpubI knew pretty much nothing about the civil war in Sri Lanka before I read this novel About half way through I stopped reading to learn so I could better understand this story I learned that this war lasted over 25 years from 1983 – 2009 and that 80000 – 100000 people were killed What those articles didn’t tell is the story of how this war impacted the people's lives This book however beautifully tells the heart wrenching story of what the Sri Lankan people endured during this civil warIt’s about the people from both sides of that struggle and how it took their sons and daughters brothers and sisters and scarred their lives forever It really is mind boggling that this small volume holds so much Yes it is mainly about the war but it is about the culture about marriages arranged marriages and love marriages about the caste system and prejudices over skin

Young boys have always perished for causes they barely
