Baby by Patricia MacLauchlan

Baby is a book about a family that gets a special surprise. Twelve year old Larkin comes home to see her family gathered in her driveway around a baby in a basket. The baby’s name is Sophie and was abandoned by her mom who couldn’t take care of her. The new arrival helps the family revive from a dark past. Sophie changes the lives of the family and the whole island. Everyone takes care of Sophie and teaches her new things. The mother claimed she would be back for her, but she just sends some money and wrights occasionally. As Sophie becomes part of the family everyone is unsure of her fate. Will she come back if her mom comes back? Will she remember them? Will she be happy living without a real mother? Read the book to find out.

The book Baby is a sweet and heartwarming book. I love this book because it is simply sweet with a twist of mystery and sorrow from the family’s past. It drags you in and makes you feel like you know the family, Sophie, and Larkin. I would recommend this book to someone who is looking for an uplifting weekend read book.
