In 1985, to save a friend left behind in fallen Saigon, a young woman will undertake a desperate mission - and discover an even more desperate passion.
1985. Before cell phones and Facebook, before Glasnost and our brave new world, America and Communism remained at odds. Vietnam was a front line, and when it fell, there were those left behind. Like Debbie Cheong’s friend Li. Yet there was hope…if someone was willing to go in after her.

But the expedition would also reveal an undeniable attraction and a soul of powerful sensuality - and deep feeling. Debbie’s upcoming journey would be filled with danger and desperation, passion and peril; it would rescue an innocent from imprisonment and a man from himself. It would be a season of enchantment worth any price.
