Product description

Product Description

Lek Jaipong’s family is surrounded by violence, much of it emanating from the background of human trafficking carried out across central Thailand. When she marries David, an Australian engineer from Warrnambool, her life changes forever. But she can never escape the memories. Haunted by her past, Lek eventually makes a choice about her future.

What seemingly starts as a love story of betrayal and sacrifice, soon leads to a deeper understanding of the suffering of Burma’s stateless and their fight against persecution.

At times brutal and murderous, this Thai wife is not the person she seems – and certainly not the person her husband thought he knew.

About the Author

Meridith McKinnon lived in Kamphaengphet during 1979 as an exchange student, at the age of sixteen, for one year. She has continued to return to Thailand nearly every year for thirty years. She has a strong interest in language and cultural difference and enjoys a good grasp of Thai and although she has studied Korean language at Yonsei University in Seoul, her Korean isn't so proficient! Her exposure to human rights issues since a young age has motivated her writing. She lives in the southernmost part of mainland Australia on a windswept property with her husband and two adult children as they come and go from overseas and work. The Thai Wife is her first novel.
