Spinning Tropics is a story about a young Japanese woman, Hiro, who has decamped to Vietnam from Tokyo to work as a language teacher. She met beautiful Yun, a local young woman studying Japanese who wants to find a better life for herself as well as for her family. The blurb behind the book stated that "this is a lush and evocative story of an intoxicating love affair" and "a love triangle with very complicated, ultimately devastating, results". I can't wait to find out what happened.

When I first arrived in Vietnam, I had expected the young women to be shy and wary of strangers, so Yun immediately stood out as someone special. Not ony does she love to talk, but she has a way with words that can charm anyone.
