She's suspicious, smart about survival and uncertain of the possibilities of love. Her life has been a series of dead-end jobs, shallow boyfriends and dashed hopes. But the more Eve watches Adam approach the world with wide eyes, comic miscomprehension, joyous delight and a deliciously sweet innocence, the more she begins to find herself falling ... in love?
