    Though this story purports to be fiction the tale is all to like real life as to be a biographical novel. It's the harrowing story of a young girl who's father gets into debt leaving her the one to redeem the family honour and repay it all. She takes employment in a bar in Pattaya, an area of Thailand. These girls dance for and with the tourists and are often expected to provide what's known as extra services. The heroine of the book has to soulsearch her actions and consider her relationship towards family, friends and even certain of the customers. Many of the girls dream of meeting a rich tourist and getting married, but what they regard as rich and what may be a different reality in the customers own country aren't things that Lek thinks about. When Lek meets and falls in love with a customer she has a struggle deciding whether she can give up the sexual freedom and her financial independence to remain with him.After all, she's had ten years of life without the problem of caring... More > for someone else. You will read of all Lek's trial and tribulations and how she agonises over the decisions life asks her to make. This is an excellent book written by an ex-pat who obviously knows his onions and has spent a lot of time researching his subject.Hard going at times, you'll find this a book of great depth. Very enjoyable. ★★★★★< Less
