Sam s terrified what will happen to Hannah when he s gone, so rejoices when elephant expert Neva Wilson arrives on the scene.

But can she dream?
Neva quickly discovers what Sam already knows: that despite their loving care, Hannah s isolation and worsening health could be her undoing. So together they hatch a plan, to send Hannah to an elephant sanctuary ? just as the zoo s spiteful director launches a campaign that spotlights Hannah as the main attraction, intricately tying Hannah s future to the fate of the zoo.
