Publisher's Summary

How far will a mother go to save her child? Ten years ago, Ruby Leander was a drifting 19-year-old who made a split-second decision at an Oklahoma rest stop. Fast forward nine years: Ruby and her daughter Lark live in New Mexico. Lark is a precocious, animal loving imp, and Ruby has built a family for them with a wonderful community of friends and her boyfriend of three years. Life is good. Until the day Ruby reads a magazine article about parents searching for an infant kidnapped by car-jackers. Then Ruby faces a choice no mother should have to make. A choice that will change both her and Lark's lives forever.

Critic Reviews

"Watch your back, Jodi Picoult! Here comes Bourret, a Yale-trained lawyer who practiced child-advocacy law and draws on past experiences for her gripping first novel.... Bourret nails the character development and pacing that make a good novel compelling. She unfolds her well-written, dramatic story in tidbits that will make readers hungry for more. (Library Journal)

Listened far into the night: Hooked!

Great reader for this surprisingly well-written and engrossing novel about a young woman who discovers an abandoned infant in a rest-stop trash receptacle and decides to keep her. A decade later the child's biological parents are identified, throwing her life and that of her family into chaos and despair. Although unrealistic at times, it's a fun read.

A Fun Read.

Narration was spot on for this emotional rollercoaster. A wonderful story full of surprises. Very entertaining and even moving at times.
