A nurse practitioner at El Centro, a not-for-profit women's health center in rural Pennsylvania, Charlotte Hopper has found peace in her carefully constructed life-until her old college friend moves next door, resurrecting a secret so devastating that Charlotte's husband leaves rather than face the past. And after a heartbreaking discovery is made on the grounds behind the clinic, the women of El Centro must contend with being in the media spotlight-and being suspected of a terrible crime. Caught in a whirlwind of tragedies both large and small, Charlotte will learn just how much of herself she can give-and how much she must keep.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Letts is a practicing certified nurse-midwife who trained at Yale University School of Nursing. A former competitive equestrian rider, she also served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Morocco.

From Publishers Weekly:

In her busy sophomore novel, Letts starts with a nurse practitioner in rural Londondale, Penn. finding a dead baby in a dumpster, and from there takes off in a dozen different directions. Nurse Charlotte Hopper's discovery, outside the women's health center where she works, instigates a highly publicized search for the killer, investigations into the clinic's viability, a slew of protestors without much to say other than they're "against dead babies," and a litany of other madcap fallout. Charlotte herself struggles to serve her disadvantaged clientele while handling a potential corporate buyout, a deserting husband, news crews and an old acquaintance with a sinister past. And still there's more: suicide, flooding and an emergency childbirth among them. The cast of supporting characters are alternately sweet or villainous, and most of the women are down on their luck, but Letts' second novel is ultimately a feel-good tale of family, motherhood and the sanctity of babies.
