Summary

A girl fights to find a way back to her island home, and her mother, when a new government official bans anyone without leprosy from living there.

Amihan lives on Culion Island, where some of the inhabitants - including her mother - have leprosy. Ami loves her home - with its blue seas and lush forests, Culion is all she has ever known. But the arrival of malicious government official Mr Zamora changes her world forever: islanders untouched by sickness are forced to leave. Banished across the sea, she's desperate to return, and finds a strange and fragile hope in a colony of butterflies. Can they lead her home before it's too late?

NOTE : Part of the story is set in an orphanage, supervised by a government inspector. He punishes one of the children by keeping her in a room where chloroform is stored. This makes her feel ill but she soon recovers.
Also includes a description of a lepidopterist "processing" a butterfly with chloroform before adding it to his collection.
