Reeling from the guilt of her father's death, seventeen-year-old Evangeline Frost attempts to take her own life. To save what's left, she is sent to Kindred Hides Wildlife Preserve, where she meets Ruke, a giraffe in mourning. Together they begin to heal, and Evangeline finds there is redemption for her, and that the bonds between human, animal, and life are not as fragile as she once thought.
