It's been a long time since I read this book and it completely caught me off guard. I think of Maclachlan's books as being light and easy to read. While this one was an easy read, it certainly wasn't light. She paints the time following the death of a baby with carefully deep strokes. The story is mostly focused around the family's oldest child, Larkin, and how she seeks to name the baby (and also her grief). As the family struggles with the death of their baby (mostly by ignoring it), another child is given to them to care for until her parents can do so again. Initially hesitant to do so, the family and their community come together to raise the child in their midst. After the child is reclaimed by her parents, Larkin helps her parent to see the importance to dealing with all the loss they've experienced.
This description seems sad, but I found the book to be lovely in its description of community and family. I think it would be beneficial for many children to read, but enjoyable as well. ( )

This is a children's book, yet, it isn't. As she has done in a similar fashion in her other books, the author places us in a simple setting, and tells us of love, sadness, and loss...but from the perspective of a child. In this instance it is Lark who relates the year that a baby became part of her family, temporarily. ( )

Larkin's family welcomes Sophie into their home, caring for her and teaching her games and new words. They come to love this baby as their own, all the while knowing that eventually Sophie's mother will return one day to take her from them.

This author can pack a lot of emotion in a few pages. Living on an island, the members welcome summer visitors and then celebrate when they leave. Twelve year old Larkin and her friend discover a baby in a basket left behind from one of the tourists.

A note indicating the name of the baby is Sophie and that the mother has watched Larkin's family and knows they will take care of her baby until she returns is all the information they have.

Sadly, the previous year, Larkin's mother and father had a tiny baby boy who did not thrive. When this tiny baby is accepted into the family, wounds not yet healed surface.

Knowing they did not want to love the baby for fear they would lose her, still they cannot help but grow fonder as the child loves the family.

Knowing that the mother will return one day, still, the family cares a great deal.

When the mother returns, the family realizes it is time to mourn the death of their son and celebrate the unconditional love they gave to sophie.

Writing with a depth of feeling, developing strong and wonderful characters, this is a story to hold in your heart. ( )

I am not resigned to the shutting away of loving hearts in the hard ground.
So it is, and so it will be, for so it has been, time out of mind:
Into the darkness they go, the wise and the lovely. Crowned
With lilies and with laurel they go; but I am not resigned.
--From "Dirge Without Music" Edna St. Vincent millay
