She was unlucky in love, recently separated and desperately searching for the man of her dreams. For Clarisse, life became so lonely that she fell in love with his picture on a dating site. For Harry, recently divorced, it carried risk and uncertainty? In this heart-rending search for passion, he travels to Manila, and the city of our affection to meet Clarisse; a woman of immense beauty and problematic past.
