Overview

A coming-of-age novel set in the lush natural beauty and political turbulence of contemporary Sri Lanka.

Modern terrorism, like ancient beliefs in spirits and ghosts thrives in lush, beautiful Sri Lanka, the setting of Edward Hower's sixth novel, A Garden of Demons. Lila, a gifted half-American girl, begins to see her once idyllic world in new ways when her Uncle Richard joins her family on a visit. Though he seeks peace in her parents' jungle nature sanctuary, Richard must instead help them to confront the dangers which threaten to destroy their home and, with frightening intensity, put an end to Lila's innocence.

Author Biography: Edward Hower is the author of five previous novels, most recently Shadows and Elephants. He lives in Ithaca, New York, and teaches at Cornell and Ithaca College.
