Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Tenea finds her lost mate after 65 million years, only to learn that there’s no way for them to be together again.

From hints in the story, it's clear that Tenea works at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.

Con: Very, very few individuals ever become fossils. Tenea’s search is almost hopeless, and she ought to know that. Nor do the ones that do turn up all go through a single museum. It’s the wildest of coincidences that she comes across just the right fossil.
