The story centers on immigrant writer Antonia Vega,  a recent widow and retired English professor. As  she settles into the quiet, lonely rhythms of her new  life, she is confronted with the disappearance of her  sister. Then she’s pulled into a drama with an undocumented farmhand and his pregnant girlfriend. 

The novel explores ideas of responsibility to others.  It is an inner journey of a woman after retirement  and widowhood. Her conflict highlights our country’s  own. When one disagrees with an unjust, even cruel  system, at what point do we step in? If silence is  complacency then just how loud do we need to  speak out?
