This is a love story set in the 1960's between Arianna (Ari for short) a Malayan student who had been awarded the Colombo Plan Scholarship to an Australian University, where she met and fell in love with Jeremy, an Australian. His mother who objected to their relationship, created a rift between them and it resulted in their break-up. Years later through the intervention of their beloved friend, Ned, they were finally reunited. The story is set in the picturesque city of Sydney and Armidale, a small university town then, as well as the agricultural state of Kedah, Malaya in the background of lush tropical padi fields and canals. The writer tries as close as possible to incorporate historical events of that period, both in Australia and Malaya (Malaysia was established in 1963) and to portray the rich cultural and religious heritage of her people who despite their poverty opened their homes and hearts to strangers who landed in their midst.
