    Why did they leave their native countries, and what were their first experiences as immigrants? Each of the three main characters Lucia, Evelyn and Richard experiences some kind of isolation in their present life. The interactions between the characters is well thought out and deep. Do you know of any immigrants in these kinds of jobs? The mother jaguar returned with her cubs, and Evelyn dared to stroke her on the back. Richard Bowmaster - a year-old human rights scholar - hits the car of Evelyn Ortega - a young, undocumented immigrant from Guatemala - in the middle of a snowstorm in Brooklyn.

    What special difficulties do they share? Richard and his wife, Anita, go through the devastating experience of losing their baby son. How does the fate of Anita and his children continue to shape his life long after their deaths? Is there an age limit for certain life experiences like falling in love?

    The book begins with Lucia physically isolated in her apartment during a snowstorm. At first, they believed they were too old to find love, before realizing that they came together at exactly the right time. A few years later, a confrontation with her step-sister resulted in Evelyn being sent to New York to take a job as a nanny, taking care of the handicapped child of the wealthy Leroys. He looked up the address of the nearest veterinary hospital, which he remembered passing by at some point. Why did they leave their native countries, and what were their first experiences as immigrants?
