(From the publisher):
Flying to Paris, her last care (and her last job) fading away in the clouds beneath her, Christine Louis experiences a rare moment of personal equilibrium. When she arrives at the pension, she finds one thing conspicuously absent from her possessions: her purse.
It's not just the robbery that unnerves her; it's the dizzying vortex of emotions that is triggered by the loss. When one male hand sneaks into her luggage and removes her purse whole, he inadvertantly brings about a massive change in her life.
Without speaking a word of French, without a friend, and without a dime, Christine must learn to survive.
