Women's Fiction Historical
Louise Watkins has her hands full. Her mother had been the
town midwife, but after her daughter Alice died under her
care, she refused to assist in a childbirth ever again.
Since then Louise has assumed the work. She also takes care
of Alice's six-year old, Charlotte, because the child's
father was lost in World War I. But Louise's principal job
is running the boardinghouse that is the family's main
source of income.
One day, Charlotte befriends a stranger
ill with influenza, a man who has taken refuge in an old
cabin in the woods nearby. Although badly scarred by wounds
suffered in the War, he is strong and slowly recovers. When
he gradually takes on odd jobs around the house, Louise
accepts his help. She is drawn to him despite his
disfigurement, and his voice is comforting, vaguely
