Gripe, Maria
New York : Harper & Row, 1990. 
Nara was adopted after her parents die in a freak car/train crash. She's never quite connected with Dag's family -- her family now. Though Dag has been friendly enough, his parents allow her space, which she interprets as their wanting to keep their distance. Coincidence connects her with an antique doll and ultimately to family secrets and brings her full swing back to the family she knows she loves and who love her.
