Twelve-year-old Nicky Dillon, while exploring the snow-covered fields near the cabin where she and her father lived, finds a live baby in the snow. The efforts of Nicky and her father to save the baby brings back memories of the tragedy they both faced not long before, and gives Nicky some hope of finding joy again.

In the days that follow the discovery Nicky and her dad find another reason to bind together, a reason that taxes their relationship. While we wait to find out how it will play out we also dip back in time to when Nicky and her dad were more carefree and were not living alone, far from others.

The events in their lives help shape their future together, as remembered by an older Nicky.

Sometimes I feel that Shreve imports dramatic circumstances to bring us in, and it doesn't feel true. In this case, although it seems the events are larger than life, it works.

I found a lovely stake of books waiting for me when I got back in town after almost a month of taking care of three different sets of grandchildren in two different states. I'm looking forward to some R & R (Rest and Reading!) I chose this book from the General Literature VBB. It looks like an interesting read. Thank you jlautner for sharing it!
