Abstract:

When a teenage couple abandons their baby at the gate of the estate owned by Lydia Blessing, Skip Cuddy, the estate caretaker, decides to raise the child himself, a decision that has a profound effect on the lives of everyone in the community.

One night a young couple sneak onto the estate of wealthy Lydia Blessing and leave a box in the driveway. In the box is a baby, and Skip Cuddy, the caretaker who finds her, decides secretly to keep her. When Lydia Blessing discovers this she has choices to make, as she had many years before. The secrets of the past, how they influence people in the present; what makes a person, a life, legitimate or illegitimate, and who decides; the unique resources people find in themselves and in a community - all are at the centre of this novel.
