Colleen didn't mean for Ma and Pa to think that the wagon woman's baby was their own. It was almost an accident, the way Colleen's stillborn sister got switched with the dying woman's baby. Ma had been too ill to know what was happening; Pa had been away. How could Colleen refuse when the woman begged her to take the newborn girl? She had meant to tell Ma and Pa a hundred times, but the truth never seemed easy to say. Now that the baby's father has returned, Colleen must find a way to keep her secret, or the truth might destroy everything and everyone she loves. A new reading discussion guide is included in the book.
