Joan Medlicott. An Unexpected Family. New York: Pocket Books, 2007.

Early on in the Miss Julia series by Ann Ross, Miss Julia has to confront the fact that her late husband had a child by another woman.  This time it’s one of the ladies of Covington who has unexpected and unwelcome visitors.  In this, the seventh book in the series, Amelia opens the door one snowy afternoon to a young woman who claims to be the daughter of her late husband.  Amelia reacts with a combination of disbelief and outrage.  Hannah and Grace recognize that this woman and her daughter need help, and that in helping them Amelia could create the security and warmth of a family for three people who need just that.
