The memory is this: a blue blanket in a basket that pricks her bare legs, and the world turning over as she tumbles out. A flash of trees, sky, clouds, and the hard driveway of dirt and gravel. Then she is lifted up and held tight. Kind faces, she remembers, but that might be the later memory of her imagination. Still, when the memory comes, sometimes many times a night and in the day, the arms that hold her are always safe. (from the first line)
Author Bio
Patricia MacLachlan
A graduate of the University of Connecticut, MacLachlan is a writer and a teacher. She is an author of both picture books and books for middle readers, but is probably best known for the 1986 Newbery Medal-winning book SARAH, PLAN AND TALL. Many of her books reflect the theme of the strength and importance of family.

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"...A book of considerable charm, whose music is far more soothing than that of the hyper-realistic 'problem' books...It teases us with the possibility of perfection." - Rosellen Brown 11/14/93

Kirkus Reviews
"A searching, beautifully written story."
