Growing up in the lagoon town of Batticaloa, a young girl, with an unquenchable curiosity and love of the natural world, is entangled in the trauma and turmoil of the Sri Lankan civil war. Uprooted from everything she holds dear, tragedy and betrayal set in motion an unforgettable odyssey. Torn from east to west, struggling with what it means to belong, she desperately seeks a way home to the land of the singing fish. 

'A tour de force! Written with such fluency and energy, the words leap off the page. Thoroughly original.'

                                                                         - Reeta Chakrabarti

'A striking debut novel that charts a childhood ravaged by war and redeemed by the chimerical magic of the natural world. A book studded with fascinating insights into the animal kingdom that gives a fresh moral perspective to exceptional violence.'                                                                                                                                      - Minoli Salgado




Roma is currently finishing up her second novel, Awoaken, a psychological thriller which draws attention to the voice inside your own head and questions how far you're willing to believe an unreliable narrator until you think they're crazy. It's a dark, humorous and twisting tale which unfolds beneath a majestic oak tree that seems to allow conversations through time.
