A timely story about saving the world and losing your marriage. It's a contemporary trip with well-meaning folks who inadvertently screw up their lives and learn that true love—and just causes—don't always mix.
Allison Hassenpfeffer-Thayer is a dreamer, a wide-eyed rainbow chaser whose fertile mind forever spews forth wildly impractical new ideas. Her husband Larry is the opposite—an ultra-anal, organize-your-sock-drawer kind of guy. But they're young and in love, and when Allison cons Larry into moving to a little northwest mountain town to raise emus, he can't say no. But rural paradise sours when Allison becomes a true believer in radical environmentalism and ends up tree-sitting with the ultimate enviro-stud, a swashbuckling alpha-male who calls himself Michael Wolfcaller.
