About this title

Synopsis:

When Birdie Wilson and his two boys find a baby floating in a basket on the Ohio River, they can't begin to imagine the impact their discovery is to have on their little of town of Cambria. Accepting Birdie's dictum that the child welfare people will name her "Baby Jane Doe" and lose her in their impersonal system, the townspeople, led by Mayor Johnny White, set out to keep the baby a secret from authorities and take care of her until they find out who she is. Surprising things take place. Cambrians who've never agreed on anything come together. Good things happen to those who become involved. Father Jacob and Pastor Mike, always competitive, work together. Granny Vogler, the town sorehead, and Ida Quattlebaum, the reclusive heir to the Quattlebaum Steamship Company fortune, find common interests. Molly Hearst, who cares for and comes to love the baby like her own, finds love with Lynn Swafford, a deputy sheriff searching for the baby after one of Birdie's boys inadvertently reveals her existence. But the big question remains . . . Where did this baby come from?

From the Author:

Of my five novels, this one was the most fun to write. Also the quickest. I wrote it during a three-month period before and after major surgery when normal physical activity was severely curtailed. It wasn't my intent to chain myself to the computer and write, but once I had the story outlined mentally I was eager to get it on paper. As always, I wrote the beginning and the end and then bridged the gap between. One part of this challenge is to create peripheral characters to help move the plot along its preordained path. Thus the birth of folks like Pudge Gaither and Madame Rowena, the psychic. Nothing gives me more satisfaction than bringing such characters alive and getting them involved in the story.
