Snowshoeing over crusted snow in the woods near their home, 12-year-old Nicky Dillon and her father come upon something shocking. There, in the pristine winter scene, an abandoned baby wails, its survival made possible only by the coincidence of their having chosen this path for their late afternoon outing.

I listened to this book just after '50 Shades of Grey' which was, let's face it, repetitiously boring with juvenile dialog. This book had a great story line that kept me interested. I couldn't wait to see what happened. Anita Shreve's books are always about human frailties and the situations caused by them. I'm a great fan of hers.
