The Land of Lost Content

Sureshini Sanders


Published by Crescent House.

Three children under the age of ten are left in the care of their elderly grandparents in the north of Ceylon. What was an unfortunate necessity transpires to be the making of them. They are last to experience a traditional way of life that was centuries old, before the onslaught of civil war changed everything forever.

Their father was one of the many doctors who migrated to the United Kingdom in the sixties and seventies - with 3 in his pocket. They followed in his footsteps and between them served the NHS for over one hundred years.

This true story explores the love of country and family; a tale of betrayal, migration and above all human resilience.

Dr Sureshini Sanders was born in 1965 in Jaffna, Ceylon and brought up by her grandparents. She moved to Edinburgh when her grandfather was taken ill, and then found herself unable to return to Sri Lanka due to the civil war and her father's opposition to the then government. Remaining in Scotland, she attended medical school in Glasgow and then initially trained as a general practitioner before becoming the first community geriatrician in Scotland. Sanders married Premal Shah, a fellow medical student, and now has two children. She has written several items for medical magazines, including 'How to die' for the RCGP. The Land Of Lost Content is her first book and was researched over a decade. All profits will go to civil war victims.
