about

A page-turner that has received world-wide critical praise, “Baby” is the tale of aging Doris Rumsey, a hunched librarian who works in a middle school. Her health rapidly deteriorating, Doris is convinced she is dying, though it turns out this elderly woman is actually pregnant. Claiming that she has never been with a man, Doris ultimately gives birth in a field to a baby girl. And, from the moment of birth, the child can sing— and sing as no other human being has ever sung. This is the story of Baby and her other-worldly melody, of her fame, her exploitation, her kidnapping and the mother’s ultimate fate. It is a tale of modern day greed, lust and desire. Best-selling novelist and award-winning film director Robert H. Lieberman takes us into a highly original story with a cast of finely drawn characters. Los Angeles Times Book Review - "A haunting novel of obsession, cultism, and greed...A tribute to Lieberman's storytelling ability...Rollerskating on a high wire." ALA Booklist - "Astounding...an unconventional novel by a spellbinding storyteller...convincing style...intriguing story." Kirkus Review - "Densely imagined and full textured...talented storyteller...Strongly involving and oddly moving." Pittsburgh Press - "Pure inspiration." The Atlanta Journal and The Atlanta Constitution - "Best of new releases...imaginative tale of human folly...exciting climax." The Fresno Bee - This gripping novel weaves intrigue, mystery and intense drama... spellbinding... masterful plot... full of surprises... well-paced. Lieberman's characters are forceful, well drawn out, dynamic in their believability. Book Week - Lieberman keeps the reader guessing... well defined characters... and entertaining novel. The Hartford Courant (Hartford, CT) - Lucid, sensitive story... compelling narrative that builds inexorably to an absorbing climax... vividly delineated characters... satisfying richness...
