Made in USA.From the publisher:
When Catherine Raven finished her PhD in biology, she built herself a tiny cottage in Montana. She was as emotionally isolated as she was physically, but she viewed the house as a temporary rest stop where she could gather her nerves and fill out applications for what she hoped would be a real job that would help her fit into society.
Then one day she realized that a mangy-looking fox was showing up on her property every afternoon at 4:15 p.m. How do you even talk to a fox? She brought out her camping chair and began reading to him from The Little Prince. Her scientific training had taught her not to anthropomorphize animals, yet as she grew to know him, his personality revealed itself and they became friends. From the fox, Catherine learned the single most important thing about loneliness: we are never alone when we are connected to the natural world.
