Newbery Award Winner Patricia MacLachlan explores the healing powers of language, memory, and love in her acclaimed novels about family ties.

Baby: When 12-year-old Larkin discovers a baby sitting in a basket in her family's driveway, Larkin's family welcomes Sophie into their home. They know that Sophie's mother will return one day and take her from them. But in time, through poetry and song, they come to love this baby as their own—and to face an unspoken loss in their past.

Journey: Journey is 11 the summer his mother leaves him and his sister with their grandparents. He searches family photographs for clues that will explain why his mother left. In the process, the camera becomes a means of finding things Journey's naked eye has missed—like the inevitability of his mother's departure and the love that still binds his family.
