Caught in the crossfire of the Indonesian armys brutal invasion of East Timor, she escapes with her life and little else. Arriving on the shores of Indonesian Borneo, she finds herself thrust into an ersatz American small town carved out of the jungle by Constar Oil of Texas.Interwoven in Francescas journey are a cast of vividly drawn characters - the bored expat brat who befriends her, a divorced fundamentalist missionary bringing Christ to the jungle via Oklahoma, the inept son of a murdered socialist martyr, a former Vietnam War helicopter pilot, an amah who supplements her income turning tricks...

Watching over them all is the menacing former Colonel Benny Surikano, Constars Mr. Fixit to whom everyone turns when they need something.Set against a backdrop of endemic political corruption, moral compromise and the pursuit of oil, Francesca is a passionate story of one womans struggle against overwhelming odds to shape the country that nearly destroyed her.
