As she lays in the infirmary of her English boarding school, Flora Baxter thinks back on her days growing up in Borneo in the 1950s.  Knowing that many of the memories may be gone forever, Flora begins to write about those days.  As she writes, more memories come flooding in.  Memories of zombies and dragons.  Of friends and family.  Of servants and privilege.  As she writes about her days living in a distant land, she comes to understand herself as well as the motivations of those around her.
