When Miranda’s husband Gerry secures a job in the British Foreign Office in Singapore, he insists that they take the opportunity to start a new life. However, when Miranda steps onto the pier she does so with a broken heart, grieving for the child she tragically lost.
The country may look like paradise but Miranda feels like an outsider, both to the people of Singapore and the tight-knit community of British ex-pats who quickly close ranks against her. Gerry cannot understand how his wife won’t simply embrace their new life, and the more he pushes, the more Miranda withdraws. Soon the terrible realisation dawns on Miranda that she has moved half-way around the world for a man who doesn’t love her, and whom she no longer loves.
So when the kind (and curiously handsome) Dr. Nick Wythenshaw asks if Miranda might like to lend a hand volunteering with the sick children at the local hospital, it gives Miranda a purpose and through her work and her friendship with Nick, she slowly begins to feel something she hasn’t felt in a long time – true happiness, and perhaps something more…
