Eight-year-old Raja, the heir to the vast property of “The House of May Flowers and Estates’ is grieving the unexpected death of his father, Kushalappa. The decision of his mother, Neelavva, to send him away turns his life upside down; challenges him at every turn of his life, through adulthood. Inheriting his legacy; mourning his mother, he follows in the footsteps of his ancestors to care for his heritage. Raja stumbles upon a secret drawer as he starts on a quest to discover the truth of his family. The bent tree in his courtyard warns him of impending doom; the sacred stone in the estate turns the custodian of his clan. A terrible crime that he unknowingly committed haunts him throughout his life. Raja will find a new life for himself that will set him free from his dark past. This debut page-turner set in the countryside of South Kodagu recounts the tale of the disintegrating Puliyand clan as it charmingly portrays the culture, ceremonies and way of life of the Kodavas.
