This was a fascinating book describing Earth's first contact with a peaceful alien race, called the Pistach, through a lone Earth woman named Benita, an abused middle-aged mother living in New Mexico. The offers an interesting look at various human cultures through the eyes of the Pistach's envoys to Earth, giving the reader a lot of food thought throughout the book.

The Pitasch are not the only aliens interested in establishing relations with humanity, and these other alien races are fuzzy, friendly ETs--their interest in humanity is much darker.

The Pistach want to help humanity get rid of these other aliens, but a crisis on their home planet threatens both races. Benita comes up with a solution that might save the day.....but only time will tell.
