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.

Easy to listen to

3 out of 5 stars

This book was pretty easy to listen to and I enjoyed it except for all of the "dad said", "Charlotte said", "I said" throughout the entire narration. Except for that I enjoyed it.

Beaufort, South Carolina is home to the Smallwoods, a family closely knit but fiercely at odds. Georgie, the youngest, is tormented by worry for her son, who vanished two years earlier, and by her anger at her father. An unforgiving patriarch and ex-Marine, Georgie's father neglects her mother, belittles her brother Ashby, and denies her sister Claire the financial support she needs after a trying divorce.

Fake Southern Accent

Overall
1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 08-16-05

I was going to buy this book but was not even able to listen to the entire sample. The southern accent was so incredibly fake and in South Carolina we do not pronounce Beaufort the way the narrator does. It's pronounced the same way you would pronounce Buford. I think I'll get the book and read it with my own real southern accent. If you are from the south be forewarned that the accent is terribly fake and may be difficult to listen to.
