    MOBI Nayomi Munaweera ✓ Island of a Thousand Mirrors PDF/EPUB É Island of ✓ island pdf, thousand download, mirrors book, Island of ebok, a Thousand download, of a Thousand pdf, Island of a Thousand Mirrors Epub I try to explain There are no martyrs here It is a war between eually corrupt forcesThis is Sri Lanka during the Civil War 1983 2009 but it could have been many countries and the Tamils and Sinhalese could have been numerous ethnic groups This is a story as old as time because we’ve always been fighting each other haven’t we? Young boys have always perished for causes they barely understand; women have always been taken and broken In my arrogance I expected less from this pastel colored debut and I was proven wonderfully wrong There’s nothing fluffy about this novel it’s brutal beautiful and deeply affecting There’s the heartbreak of first love lost infidelity marriage breakdown miscarriage terrorism refugee isolation and war so much war There’s an undercurrent of anger in Munaweera’s narrative a tired fed up plea for this cycle to end She tells the story from the perspective of two girls from opposing ethnic groups whose tragic f
