From one of Canada's best young voices comes a sweeping literary adventure set against the backdrop of French Indochina. Paris, 1909: Adélie Tremier, a young widow suffering the final stages of tuberculosis, flees for French-occupied Indochina, through the lush forests of Laos, to seek out a fabled spring of immortality that might allow her to return to her nine-year-old son. Laos, 1936: Pierre Lazarie, a young academic turned Saigon bureaucrat, is sent by Adélie's son, now an Army captain, to find his longlost mother. Although his assigned quest fulfills Pierre's fantasy to travel up the exot.
