Summary, etc.:
"Mona is twenty-six and cleans houses for a living in Taos, New Mexico. She moved there mostly because of a bad boyfriend--a junkie named Mr. Disgusting, long story--and her efforts to restart her life since haven't exactly gone as planned. For one thing she's got another bad boyfriend. She calls this one Dark, and he happens to be married to one of Mona's clients. Dark and his wife aren't the only complicated clients on Mona's roster ... there's also the Hungarian artist couple who remind her of troubling aspects of her past and some of the underlying reasons her life had to be restarted in the first place. As Mona tries to get over the heartache of her affair and the pains of her youth, she winds up on an eccentric, moving journey of self-discovery that takes her back to the home she grew up in and that--she hopes--will unlock the key to having a sense of home in the future" -- Front jacket flap.
