(The novel, obviously, has adult themes, but all sexual activity is referred to only indirectly, without any details.)
What do you think would happen if a dedicated career hermit were suddenly to find himself the object of a lovely young lady’s affections? To make the story more fun, let’s say this young lady is – ahem – a bit more active in her love life than some people would consider proper. Her father just happens to be the mayor of their village, and officials of his political party view her behavior as a “political embarrassment” that could cost them the next election.
All this adds up to a playfully-written story, sort-of-but-not-quite-a-parable, full of politicians plotting devious and underhanded schemes, a PR firm working feverishly to spin the heck out of the various scandals that result, a hermit whose spiritual journey goes terribly awry, and a girl who wishes people would just let her enjoy life in her own way.
