By Sue Guiney

A Clash of Innocents

Novel

Against the back­drop of Cam­bodia’s vi­ol­ent past and the be­gin­nings of its new Tribunal for justice, a story of dis­placed souls un­folds in this first novel of Sue’s Cam­bod­ian tri­logy. In Cam­bodia, in­no­cents are every­where. Every­one is in­no­cent, or so they would like to be­lieve—every­one, ex­cept the few who, for their own private reas­ons, take on the guilt of the many.

Against the evocative background of Cambodia, this is the heart-warming story of the indomitable Deborah, who runs an orphanage and fights with he own demons as the country struggles to come to terms with its bloody history. Guiney keeps us wanting more with this tale of the triumph of love in impossible circumstances. A real page-turner.

You’ll want to read this book if you’ve been to Cambodia—you’ll understand a lot that you didn’t at the time. And you’ll want to read it if you’ve never been and never will. It’s just a story very well told.

– John Burgess, author of A Woman of Angkor
