Thai island girl Thanikarn’s chances of meeting a good Thai man were limited … and foreigners couldn’t be trusted.

On the Thai island of Koh Samui, Thanikarn, a masseuse with traditional values, has never fallen in love – until she meets Lucas, a dashing French American musician, ten years her junior. After a brief and passionate affair, Lucas returns home and Thanikarn doubts she’ll ever see him again.

But Lucas leaves Thanikarn with more than just memories, including a song that he composes and records for her.

While Thanikarn bravely navigates adulthood alone, making life choices, moving to the island of Phuket and developing new friendships, she is unaware that Lucas’ singing career is taking off.

Will Thanikarn find out what has become of Lucas? Will their lives ever cross again? Only unforeseen events and the gift of a song will decide.
