Every detail of the book offers carefully nuanced details of the experience of a place named Lucid Green; a nature sanctuary set in an unknown time in the future. That future is a type of space and time that is different than the one we are in when we read the book, we are told, by the book,s main character, Jill Poet. Jill is a being from another planet name Thear, who has come to Earth after an event called The Disappearance. The book's 3 chapters Jill Poet, The Disappearance and Wonder bring the reader through her realization as a spirit that evokes the ambiguity of life and our love of a dying planet.
