Having lost the love of her life to cancer, Anna Green, writer, sometimes poet, has fled the comfort of her New York friends and family for the South of France where she has no friends and no language. But hopefully, enough challenges to control the painful memories that are devouring her life. She gets more than she even bargained for in this world where the simplest task is a catastrophic mess. Everything about her new life, from sex to making new friends to finding a simple address is like cutting through the jungle. Very hard for a city girl who has never even seen a jungle.
