I read "The Flower Boy" nearly 10 years ago.
The setting (Sri Lanka, 1930's onwards) is picturesque and affecting in its nature and era.
Chandi, a young Sri Lankan boy is filled with wishful dreams and a vivid imagination inspired by his environment too. His best friend is the English daughter of a tea plantation owner, who employs Chandi's mother as a housekeeper.

A dear, moving book.
