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)

From the Publisher:
Taking care of a baby left with them at the end of the tourist season helps a family come to terms with the death of their own infant son.
Twelve-year-old Larkin discovers a baby in a basket in front of her house. A note in the basket reads "This is Sophie. She is almost a year old and she is good. I will come back for her one day. I love her." Larkin and her family welcome Sophie into their lives and come to love her as their own, knowing--and fearing--that one day her mother may return to take her away from them.

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."
