The so-called "mail-order bride" phenomenon developed to fill the needs of lonely men, particularly in regional Australia. But the marriages did not always work out.
Nilanthi was such a bride. The youngest of five daughters in a family where status was higher than income, her parents had difficulty providing dowry large enough to attract a suitably well-to-do husband for her. Believing all westerners were rich, she chose to take her chances with an unknown suitor, a farmer in far-away Australia.
When Nilanthi goes missing, her parents in Sri Lanka ask Laura, a Sydney history teacher with memories of her own experience of marriage to a Sri Lankan man, for help in finding their daughter. To find the young woman, Laura has to travel a thousand kilometres across the state and fifty years back into her own family's tragic past.
