This is the Tamil edition of From Shore to Shore.
It reminds you of the smell of fresh cow dung smeared on raw earth. You feel that you are transported back in time - Taken to a picturesque village, where young men work from dawn to dusk, their feet caked with soil. Your journey with the book begins here. From an obscure village in Coimbatore to the rubber plantations of Malaysia.
Muthammal Palanisamy's `From Shore to Shore' tells the story of a family, which had to migrate to Malaysia, then `the land of promise.' Set in the early 1900s, the book traces the history of Muthammal's family. Written in lucid prose, the story of love, labour and war unfurls to the reader at an unhurried pace. - The Hindu: Tamil Nadu News.
