Synopsis

Sophie remembered last night’s dream and the gray stones—a whole row of them like the ones under the trees. Each stone was etched with letters that she couldn’t quite read.
Sophie's pregnant mother falls and Sophie knows the accident is her fault. Premature labor begins and everyone fears the infant might join the others under the gray stones. Aunt Rae arrives to help care for the baby and mother, but her presence only increases the tension in the family. Aunt Rae finds her niece talking with the young man from a neighboring farm and confronts her, revealing something that shakes Sophie's world.

NO-NAME BABY is an intimate portrait of a young girl as she discovers the truth about herself and her family.

When she finally begins to reveal a few of the secrets of her unfortunate life, readers should be moved to care for her—as Sophie is—but she’s depicted so unpleasantly, albeit realistically, that they may find it hard to transition to a more empathetic perspective.
