He saves the baby and starts visiting her in the hospital every day.

When a foster home is needed for the baby, Abbi and Ben step forward.


Ben has shut Abbi out and there is little remaining in their relationship. Abbi finds less and less reason to stay in their rocky marriage.


Riddled with unfolding subplots, this novel is about loss, need, soul damage, and relationships that heal.
