The protagonist of this novel, Ya Rose, quit her job in her native country and travelled to the United Kingdom to seek greener pastures. There, she found life extremely hard contrary to her expectations. Consequently, she resorted to luring men into relationships with the aim of manoeuvring her way out of the awkward situation in which she found herself, as can be seen in the excerpts below: 'I will be saying pleasant things to you and giving you good things to make you feel comfortable and happy if you marry me. I will transform you into a very young boy.' 'I believe you can make me happy, but I wonder how you can turn an old man into a young lad. Do you have magical powers to do that?'
