When journalist and inner-city girl Lynne Minion decides to become a humanitarian, she soon finds herself arriving in East Timor with a clutch of duty-free cosmetics, a shoe fetish and a tiara . . . In heat and humidity that has make-up sliding off her face, it's a shock to discover Timorese haute couture is the covered-up look - in lilac. It's a shame, to, because patrolling this tropical paradise are thousands of hunky, sex-starved and mostly Latino peacekeepers. Ah, yes, it's a male-to-female ration that gives "foreign affairs" a whole new meaning; but not even Lynne imagined she'd find love among the dust, goats and poverty of East Timor. From chardonnay-soaked nights on oceanfront dance floors, to brushes with guns and machetes . . . from the glittering Independence celebrations, to the frustrations of working for the UN in the country's brand-new bureaucracy, Hello Missus is a rollercoaster of often hilarious, sometimes poignant, always revealing and certainly controversial takes on what really happens under the covers of a peacekeeping mission.
