the four- month-old Slade baby from the Belle Ruin Hotel more than
twenty years before. The sudden appearance in town of the baby''s
father, Morris Slade, makes her even more determined to learn the
truth. Then a mysterious drifter named Ralph Diggs appears at the

everyone there. Everyone, that is, except Emma.

previous books Hotel Paradise, Cold Flat Junction, and

intuition and humor.
