About the Book
When a pipeline project threatens to cut LAFE's brain in half, LAFE overcomes long-standing antipathy toward human beings and seeks the aid of Daphne DeFreest. But first they must heal her broken body and find a way to communicate. This is their story.
Because she's changed in many tree-like ways, Daphne first has to make herself presentable to a society that doesn't favor green skin, nails, and blood. LAFE manages to delay the digging until the crew must stop digging for the winter—when he must go dormant.
By the time LAFE wakes in the spring, Daphne still hasn't quite enough money for LAFE's defense. They must find a way to connect LAFE to the internet, where he can use his magnificent computing power to help Daphne attempt a daring coup. Unfortunately, her ruthless cousin Russell notices her coup in the financial press. Russell has Daphne drugged, kidnapped, and committed to a private asylum in the Adirondacks.
If LAFE is to be saved, Daphne must somehow escape the asylum and solve a series problems—physical, legal, incendiary, financial, and emotional. Her efforts take her halfway around the world, and may cost her the love of her life.
What will she do? So as not to spoil the story, we'll let you read the conclusions for yourself.
