Monsoon is a journey into the hearts and memories of those caught in a certain time in a particular place. Sandy Donaldson has been working for a volunteer organisation in Vietnam for the past four years. As her contract nears its end, she is reluctant to leave so she invites her oldest friend, Anna, to come for a holiday and discover its beautiful tourist destinations.

Both girls have unexplored links to this country. Sandy's father is a Vietnam vet and Anna's mother was a Vietnamese boat person. During their travels they meet Tom, an old Australian journalist who covered the war and plans to report on the fortieth anniversary of the Battle of Long Tan. It is Tom who tries to persuade Sandy's father to return to Long Tan and settle the ghosts that have haunted him for 40 years, and suggests that Anna should delve into her mother's past.

But the girls are reluctant, swept up in their own concerns, relationships, and a business deal that has the potential to go horribly wrong. However, it is the near-blind Buddhist nun living alone in the pagoda atop one of the karsts in Halong Bay who might hold the key. Download and start listening now!

    " Good introduction to US interests in the region. "

    " This was a good read, taking in all the countries that have shores on the Indian Ocean, and with a proper amount of author's attitude. Not light reading, but not too tough either. I learned a lot, particularly about China and many small countries. "

    " One of a series of books which anyone (and that should include all of us) interested in current geopolitics should read. I include Fareed Zakaria's 'The Post American World' and Michael B. Oren's 'Power, Faith, and Fantasy' in that grouping. One point - anyone person who never enjoyed reading history will surley be awakened to the value of such reading, once reading these books. "

    " I am usually a huge fan of Kaplan and this topic was interesting to me. However, book was meandering, read more like a poly sci term paper and lacked his usual fascinating descriptions of local scenes. "
