When college-student Tip is pushed out of the way of an oncoming car, his family assumes his savior is a stranger--but she's actually Tip's birthmother, who has been secretly watching Tip and brother Teddy grow up. All too quickly, the boys, their widowed father, and their birthmother's preteen daughter are faced with a new family dynamic.
"And why was it the boys had never asked about her either, never said, as children in similar circumstances surely must, what about our real mother? Maybe because it was natural to wonder about the one who was missing, the one who left you, and for their family that would always be Bernadette. No one could be expected to hold up two empty places."
