When the Bough Breaks Irene N.Watts Tundra Books January 12, 2010 Millies is a small family just a mother, a father, a small brother, Hamish, and her. Both her parents had been orphaned (and were introduced in Watts novel Flower ), but the family they created was tight-knit and loving. When Millies mother announces that she is pregnant, it seems life is perfect. They have each other, and, although the Great Depression has brought hard times to their small town, Millies fathers services as a blacksmith are still in demand. But when her mother dies, suddenly everything changes. Her father retreats into depression and Millie, only thirteen, finds herself responsible for a newborn baby. When a stranger appears and threatens the remnants of the family even further, Millie musters courage she never dreamed she had to rebuild the home that means so much to her. Irene N. Watts memorable story is as complex and as comforting as family life itself. From the Trade Paperback edition.
