Summary
"Hillary Birdsong's idyllic New England childhood is brought to a sudden halt by the death of her beloved older brother. Brokenhearted, Hillary seeks consolation in city boy Miles. At sixteen she finds herself pregnant, a shame to her fractured family. With few choices available to her - her parents won't help her raise the child and Miles doesn't offer any support - she gives her baby boy up for adoption. And so, for the next eighteen years, she quietly and achingly yearns for the day her son might contact her." "A touching portrait of a broken family, the reverberating effects of an adolescent's necessarily adult decision, and survival after the ravages of devastating loss, B-Mother is a drama, a story whose characters and moments of grace you won't soon forget."--BOOK JACKET
Summary
