Summary
Vacchetta was recently divorced and feeling heartbroken and depressed-- until someone brings an orphaned baby hedgehog into his veterinarian clinic. Recognizing the creature's helplessness and desperation in himself, he connects with her in a way he's never connected with any other animal. Naming her Ninna, he uncovers her vibrant personality, and rediscovers his own. As people begin to seek him out to heal and care for other injured or orphaned hedgehogs, Massimo continues to dote on Ninna like a child. But the cage that once kept her safe soon becomes a prison, and as much as it breaks Massimo's heart to let her go, he knows she longs to be free. -- adapted from jacket
