Rangoon 1930. Winsome, raised in a convent and newly married to a man she barely knows, is full of anticipation as she travels towards the great metropolis.

She does not know that Rangoon, this city cradled in the arms of rivers, is about to be torn apart in the struggle between its ancient owners and new masters. That it will seduce her, possess her senses and change utterly her notion of what kind of woman she can be.

When she meets Jonathan - when the monsoon comes - she begins to find out.

'Evokes a viscerally beautiful world and a heady journey into the consequences of love. A wonderful read.' Alice Pung
