Ruth was born in a very remote coffee plantation in Papau, New Guinea. Since they were so remote, her mother allowed her to play with the native children. This was during a time of great racist divides. She is sent off to school on the main land after becoming too friendly with a native boy. She comes back for Christmas to a family in turmoil, and event after event shapes Ruth's live for the next 15 years.

This book was a quick easy read. There were parts where I had to slow down or reread a sentence or two because of the way they spoke and words they used. I had a bit of a time understanding it. I loved some of the characters and felt others fell flat. The story was a little too predictable but some of the fun characters made that bearable.
