Love in the Boondocks @AdamMannAuthor #RLFblog #romance

Dave is working for a development project with farmer families in remote and distant areas, often mountainous. Very few people speak English, and he works with several translators. He comes across primary school teachers who work in villages in those areas, and one of them who speaks English asks him for help with transport to one of the distant villages. She inadvertently invites herself for accommodation overnight in Dave's small village house.
Kim Anh comes from a family of teachers, and unfortunately is just recovering from a failed marriage, so meeting Dave is quite fortuitous and she instinctively cleans and tidies Dave's kitchen and bedroom.
Kim's departure to her new village is delayed as her transport is not available, until after the forthcoming luni-solar holidays, and she stays another day in Dave's house. The weather grows colder and Dave kindly offers her warmer sleeping facilities!
Kim had found Dave an attractive man when she first met him, but Dave found all young ladies beautiful, until Kim began to blossom under Dave's care.
Initial contact turns to passion and passion to deep love.
Everything works out well until Kim's co-teacher turns up with a baby, a non-husband, and big problems!
