Author(s): 

Claire and Adam Townsend have been trying for years to have a baby, and when Claire finally snaps and asks to buy her brother's newborn, everyone starts to worry. Her little sister, Sally, offers to act as a surrogate mother. Though Claire and Adam decline her offer, nine months later THEIR DOORSTEP BABY (3) shows up. They know they can't keep him and start a search for Sally. But with the baby looking more like Adam every day, Claire can't stop wondering if Adam and Sally were up to something on her last visit. Barbara Hannay's latest has very layered and life-like characters and a premise that is overflowing with deep, emotional issues.
