The novel tells the story of Piyal, a young teacher who falls in love with Nanda, the daughter of Muhandiram Kaisaruwaththa, a wealthy aristocrat in a southern village. However, their relationship faces many obstacles due to the differences in their caste, class and family expectations. Nanda is married off to Jinadasa, a businessman from another high caste family, while Piyal leaves the village and moves to Colombo, where he becomes rich and successful. Years later, they meet again and rekindle their romance, but their lives have changed drastically due to the impact of colonialism, capitalism and nationalism.

Gamperaliya is widely praised for its realistic portrayal of Sinhala rural life and its use of symbolic language to convey the themes of change, conflict and identity. The novel also explores the contrast between the traditional values of the village and the modern values of the city, as well as the role of religion, education and politics in shaping the society. The novel has been adapted into a film in 1964 by Lester James Peries, which is regarded as a milestone in Sri Lankan cinema.
