From the back of the book:
"When Julia Win's father disappears one day, her family is shocked and confused. That is, until they find a love letter he'd written many years ago to a woman in Burma. Intent on solving the mystery and piecing together her father's mysterious past, Julia decides to put her own budding legal career on hold to travel to the small mountain village of Kalaw. There she is approached by a man who claims to know her father, and who also seems to have an uncanny knowledge of Julia herself. She meets with him every afternoon and listens to incredible tales of her father's youth--of his childhood blindness, his education at a monastery, and, most of all, about his romantic relationship with a local girl. What Julia uncovers is a tale of unimaginable hardship, resilience, and passion that will forever change her own life."
