Thomass are powerful, live wealthily under democracy, rearing their four children. The Abdullahs, with seven children, live in poverty, subjugated under Sadammon, a ruthless, dictatorial leader who is overthrown, later, under the Aneons.

Haaroon, the eldest brother, dies in prison, leaving the other brother GHAALIB wanting revenge and setting in motion events that almost destroy both families. Wealth and poverty pales when a loved one dies, the vacuum - hatred. The story is about conflict - how it affects two families- ultimately, nearly destroying them both.

The novel will appeal to anyone interested in people and the way war changes attitudes and beliefs, each side believing they are so different, and so right, yet in reality, each is the same, each believing that God is always on their side. This is not about war, per se, but about how war affects two families - not glamorous - not heroic. Not who is right, or who is wrong - for the great leveller of life is destruction of ones family, for everyone feels the same raw emotions when death knocks on their door- irrespective of where they live, or of how much wealth they possess, or of how they are brought up.

The novel depicts human nature - at its best - at its worse, with numerous shades in-between over a number of years. How these two families handle emotional turmoil and family loss.
