About the Book

Meet Eva. Her US-educated parents had a dream to raise their family in a spiritual and naturalist style in the mountains of the Andes. Eva and her brother laugh, love, play, and work very hard while encountering other souls in their beloved forest, growing ever mindful the presence of a larger world. A daring journey begins for Eva as events catalyze unexpected separation from her family and catapult her as an outsider into a modern US city. The contrast of her lively, whimsical yet spiritual approach to life and her new urban surroundings unfold a tapestry of modern social issues humorously and insightfully. Through fresh perspective, grace, determination, and a little bit of luck, she embraces the unknown courageously. She interrelates with friends and people in her social community, solving the puzzles of her family and her own identity. Ultimately, she discovers life, friendship, love, and the oddities and treasures of our modern culture.
