Description - Empire's Children by Patricia Weerakoon

Shiro, the daughter of a native tea-maker, cares nothing for the class distinctions of tea plantation life. She dreams of a future as a missionary doctor and wants nothing more than to play with her best friend, Lakshmi, even though Lakshmi is a coolie labourer. Into their world come Anthony Ashley Cooper and his brother William, heirs to the tea plantations in Sri Lanka. From childhood, the boys were taught to scorn Sri-Lankan natives and see labourers as slaves to be used for personal gratification and to increase company profits.Will Shiro's dream ever be realised or will circumstances conspire against her? Can Lakshmi rise above the destiny that says she will always be lowly labourer? Will Anthony and William ever see them for what they really are?

Author Biography - Patricia Weerakoon

Patricia Weerakoon is a medical doctor-cum-academic turned sexologist and writer. She was director of an internationally renowned graduate program in sexual health at the University of Sydney, but retired in 2012 to pursue her passion for writing and public speaking. She writes romantic fiction with a social conscience, bringing together her international experience in sexual health and her love for her homeland of Sri Lanka. Her non-fiction books are gold-standard guides for good sex for all ages. As a sexologist she has translated her passion to bring good holistic sexual health to all people into practical sex education, sex research and sex therapy. Her writing and speaking brings together her enthusiasm for sex and her love for the glory of God. Patricia has a recognised media presence and is a popular public speaker and social commentator in Australia. Her first novel with Rhiza Press is Empire's Children. Website: Twitter: @kamalini
