Dave is working for a development project with farmer
families in remote and distant areas, often mountainous. Very few people speak
English, and he works with several translators. He comes across primary school
teachers who work in villages in those areas, and one of them who speaks English
asks him for help with transport to one of the distant villages. She inadvertently
invites herself for accommodation overnight in Dave’s small village house.
Kim Anh comes from a family of teachers, and unfortunately is just recovering
from a failed marriage, so meeting Dave is quite fortuitous and she
instinctively cleans and tidies Dave’s kitchen and bedroom.
Kim’s departure to her new village is delayed as her transport is not
available, until after the forthcoming luni-solar holidays, and she stays
another day in Dave’s house. The weather grows colder and Dave kindly offers
her warmer sleeping facilities!
Kim had found Dave an attractive man when she first met him, but Dave found all
young ladies beautiful, until Kim began to blossom under Dave’s care.
Initial contact turns to passion and passion to deep love.
Everything works out well until Kim’s co-teacher turns up with a baby, a
non-husband, and big problems!
