When she arrives there, though, instead of finding her mother, she meets Otto Beckinhide, an old man with a medical condition called transient global amnesia who just might be the key to Jilly’s past if only he could remember the present for more than twenty-four hours. As if living with Otto isn’t complicated enough, Jilly’s life gets more tangled when she meets Gwenivere: a twenty-one-year-old pregnant woman who reminds Jilly of a swearing princess. Sadly, Gwen has had to abandon her first daughter, leaving her behind at the commune where she’d been born. When Jilly discovers Gwen’s secret, she knows someone has to rescue this child. She takes this perilous adventure with Tage: a young man living on his own until his father is released from prison for a crime he committed years ago in a desperate attempt to provide for his young son. Too bad Tage won’t agree to search for the money never recovered from the robbery. . . at least not until Cat Catella, the beautiful black woman who has fled an abusive relationship and finds a gentler love in Otto’s arms, ends up accused of murdering her ex. Jilly knows they can’t leave Cat in jail—especially since she also knows Otto is the one who pulled the trigger. But Jilly cannot give up hope of meeting her biological mother, so she sets in motion her last chance to force her mother to acknowledge her, even as she fears that if her real mother does show up, her appearance may prove once and for all that there is nobody on earth who truly loves Jilly Sanders.
