This 320 page novel is one of the first, if not the first to be published in English about Borneo. It's a story about a newly arrived British government officer's experiences and his struggles to find a woman to love. The book was subsequently published under the title "Passion Fruit." Rutter was a civil servant employed in British North Borneo and wrote several non-fiction works about Government and the people of what is now Sabah.
