Lucy Cruickshanks' road to Rangoon

Burma, the child of the UK embassador, went unaccounted for in the 1980s. Michael Atwood, who discovers himself in the northern part of the state, is in immediate peril, caught between the sides waging a fierce civilian conflict and without a way back to Rangoon.

Burma, the child of the UK embassador, went unaccounted for in the 1980s. Michael Atwood, who discovers himself in the northern part of the state, is in immediate peril, caught between the sides waging a fierce civilian conflict and without a way back to Rangoon. The best chance of saving him is to rely on Thuza, a ruby trafficker who is offering him an exit.

Thuza has lived her whole lifetime in a border city between rebels and goverment troops, never deciding on one side, but trying to live on both. To Thuza, the ambassador's kid is her way out of the world. But, as all three are learning at their own expense, everyone has a prize in this mysterious and wild land.

Coming from the heartland of Burma's tropical Rubyland is an emotive mystery because three lifetimes are brought together by the frantic decisions they make to live in a land shaken by civilian war: a story of ambitions, redemption and hopes that Lucy Cruickshanks acknowledges as a masterful storyline.

Review - The Road to Rangoon

A 11-year-old woman called Thuza Win observes her smuggled rubber parent being tortures and captured. When Thuza Win tries to rescue her family from the Shan State Army, a private grabs her grandmother's knife and cuts her mouth in half, leaving her to die. Fascinating and hypnotic scripture gave me the feeling that with Thuza Win, with the wealthy and lovely jewels hiding in her messenger pockets, I was evading the land mines and the insurgents in the bush.
