Sue Guiney’s latest novel, Out of the Ruins, is being published and is now available in paperback and ebooks.
This is the second in her series of novels set in modern day Cambodia. It imagines a clinic founded by Khmer and Westerners working together to battle the very real issues of women's health care among the poor living within Siem Reap, a city steeped in a glorious past and hurtling towards an unsure future. It also takes a hard look at the sex trade and asks the question, how can good and evil reside together within the same heart.
Although this isn’t a sequel to her first Cambodian novel, A Clash of Innocents, it does have some overlapping characters and concerns. It’s more of a companion piece to the first book, although reading both books makes it an even better experience. Of A Clash of Innocents, Anam Cara alumna and much-published author Tania Hershman said: "This is a story that will grip you, with its very real and flawed protagonists and fascinating setting. I read the book straight through, I was utterly absorbed."
