Blessings - Anna Quindlen

A touching story of redemptive love.  I enjoy this writer very much.  Her descriptions of the setting and of her characters feelings are so well chosen; she makes every word count.

"The happiness or contentment or resignation or whatever it was a person felt when the repeated customs of her life had become that life itself."

It's a story of a caretaker who finds a baby left on the door step and the landowner near the end of her life who shares his love and care for the child.

I would read this one again.
