Lynne Hinton. The Arms of God. New York: St. Martin’s, 2005.

Alice Jacobs’s life takes a dramatic turn when her mother, who had abandoned her as a toddler decades before, shows up at her front door. There isn’t much time for catching up, as her mother dies only a few weeks later. The sudden reunion rekindles Alice’s interest in her past and, using a scrapbook full of clues, she pieces together her mother’s story–starting with her Greensboro childhood–and begins to understand the woman who left her behind.
