"On leave from work, unsettled by the proximity of her ex, and struggling with her hostile neighbors, Mary has become increasingly captivated by a magnificent fox who is always in her garden. First she sees him wink at her, then he brings her presents, and finally she invites him into her house. As the boundaries between the domestic and the wild blur, and the neighbors set out to exterminate the fox, it is unclear if Mary will save the fox, or the fox save Mary"--Provided by publisher.

The Basis of the book is good with nice descriptions. I found it was dry and confusing at points when random characters would show up out of nowhere and there was no real conflict for the main character. I was slightly let down from the ending.
