After several years she bumped into a boy she had known once when he and his brothers has hired onto the rice farm as extra hands. She liked him then--now she really liked him. He was charming and fun and well you know the type! Only her grandmother seemed to see through this guy-but of course said nothing. Lek married him and then the real troubles began.
He left her stranded and she moved back with her parents and grandmother. Then her father died leaving them with enormous bills. Her cousin came to her rescue and invited her to work in Pattaya at a bar she owned. Lek ultimately said yes--and her two best friends decided to go as well. She really did not have a choice--she certainly did not want her Mom to lose the rice farm! All went well until she realized that her husband had left her a little something--a baby. She had to return home and leave the baby with her mother--then return back to work.
This is the beginning of Behind The Smile - The Story of Lek, a Bar Girl in Pattaya. It is the 7th in the series and is actually a prequel to all the rest. I enjoyed learning about the culture of the people and why they sometimes did what they did. I can certainly understand that in that culture that Lek had to join the profession she did.

Currently living in a mixed marriage, it is easy to relate to the characters and culture issues.
Hopefully Owen will continue the storyline
