Tim I. Gurungabout this book: When I finished writing my 7th epic novel about Hong Kong, I was both mentally and emotionally fully drained, and I didn't want to write any sad story again for a long time. THE ATONEMENT - my 8th book is therefore a very simple book of love, compassion and responsibility, and most of all it is a book about a celebration of women. It is a story occurred in a small, remote and isolated village, untouched and unspoiled by the vices and virtues of modernity, and about a patriarchal, self-reliant, and closely knitted society. They had been living there for more than a hundred years by their own, they had their own culture, traditions and way of life. When the outsiders finally arrived at their front gate, it all changed and they also had to adapt with the new changes just like all of us do.
It is also a book that refreshed all of my childhood memories, I myself as a village boy back in Nepal before I joined the British army and came to Hong Kong, I got to use many of my childhood memories here in this book, and I am really happy that I did. I sincerely do hope that my readers will find it interesting.
