For Aid worker Ayla Harris, her first overseas mission to
post-tsunami Indonesia presents the perfect opportunity for
escape. A failed romance with a married man and a strained
relationship with her twin sister have left her suffering
from a general sense of ‘detachment’.
But a late night call on the eve of her departure reminds
Ayla that the bonds of love can be tenacious. It turns out
that her wheeler-dealer brother-in-law, Robert Trasque, has
gone missing in Thailand.
However, it is the injured orphan Mahdi who restores Ayla’s
soul with a single word: mother. In his child’s eyes she
discovers the extent of her connection to the world.
From the devastated tourist beaches of Southeast Asia to the
graveyard that was Banda Aceh, Ayla sets out on a personal
mission – to find her sister’s gold-hungry husband and
return him to his family.
In the midst of universal tragedy, what is the value of a
single life? Can Ayla expose a killer and avoid becoming
next victim as she and her team struggle to bring hope to a
region that is drowning in despair?
